Templar graffitti still to be found

Stone carvings at Domme, France

"There are Templar graffiti in the dungeon at Warwick Castle in England and at Chinon Castle in France.

But by far the strangest and most intriguing examples are to be found at the guardhouse at Domme, in south-western France.
Traces of the order that have been unaccountably overlooked in the thousands of pages written about the Templars. These wall carvings are as close to first-hand Templar writings are we are ever likely to get, so when the opportunity arose to take a close look at them I seized my camera and sallied forth.

Little did I suspect that what I was to find would leave me astonished and engulf most of my spare time in the following months as I became driven by the need to comprehend what the Templars had left behind on the walls of this terrible place. "
