Memorials and Inscriptions
On 7 September 2012 the project held a Study Day in the History of Art department at the University of Edinburgh. Before the Study Day we contacted project associates asking them to share any images of memorials and inscriptions that they might have for use in our discussions at the Study Day. We were overwhelmed by the response - please find a sample of those images below. If you have any comments or suggestions about the images please do get in touch - EICatHome@ucl.ac.uk. Many thanks to Verity Wilson, Adrian Goodman, John Sykes, Brian Wood, Gillian Forrester, Nigel Erskine, Alistair Mutch, Sushma Jansari, Philip Browne, Chris Jones, Jan Usher, Viccy Coltman, Anne Buddle, Sarah Longair, Margaret Makepeace and Rosie Llewellyn Jones for contributing images.
