    Wikipedia has a useful history and survey of Grafitti . It explains that: ‘The term graffiti referred to the inscriptions, figure drawings, etc., found on the walls of ancient sepulchers or ruins, as in the Catacombs of Rome or at Pompeii. Usage of the word has evolved to include any graphics applied to surfaces in a manner that constitutes vandalism.’

    I suppose the inscriptions and graphites in the Tower of London are an interesting example of grafitti which illustrates that grafitti is essentially a ‘device’ (only sometimes an art), irrespective of the content of the politics, religion or ideology. [] also see ‘A Short History of the Tower of London’ by George Younghusband 1926.
