page 237 note 2 29th April 1953. It is of much the same size as two graffiti on the outside walls of North Cerney church in Gloucestershire. Both they and the St. Albans bull show simplicity of line; but the North Cerney drawings (which are probably considerably later in date) are grotesque and crude, whereas the St. Albans bull is naturalistic, albeit distinctly stylized in character, and of superior draughtsmanship. I have found since writing this note that the St. Albans graffito was recorded in 1949 by the late R. L. Hine, F.S.A., whose notes are in the Library of the Society of Antiquaries. It has not, however, been published.
