    This is fascinating, and I suspect the product of quite a lot of hard work, both in getting such clear images, and in identifying the scenes. One query: on the Macbeth panel, there seems to be something written on the wall, above and between the figures. I can’t quite make it out (though the first word might just be ‘Richard’). Do you have any idea what this might be? Is it original, or just graffiti?

      Hello Oliver,
      The words are difficult to decipher but I am pretty sure they read “All hail Macbeth”, the words with which the weird sisters greet Macbeth. They are part of the original plaque. Thank you for your interest!
