The oldest dated graffiti in the ancient quarries-1586. Delicately charcoaled, this would never have survived above ground!

Chris, the speaker for this Zoom Talk, with Jean-Claude Saratte- a “Catacop”- for many years in charge of the police unit responsible for patrolling the underground quarry network.
