Incredible. I love it David. How much of the abbey's documents survive?

Hi Charlie - they are amazing aren't they? And with a bit of humour too. I wonder if Terry Gilliam had seen them before he did Monty P...Sadly, not sure how much other stuff from the Abbey survives. Most would have been destroyed in the civil war


I like the drawing of the templars, with his buddy riding shotgun behind him. This must be the earliest evidence of rock, paper, scissors right?
