This is fascinating and totally new to me, from the stories you have heard is the specific to mainland northern europe? Do these stories you heard define era these scratches are from?Today we did a tour of old churches. This is a gothic portal in Spijkenisse with strange scratches.
I heard two theories about similar scratches:
- French occupation troops sharpening their sabres
- Pilgrims collecting church dust for medicinal puproses
Do you have more?
