Graffiti etched on a wall in St Mary's Church, Ashwell, Hertfordshire. It tells us about when the Black Death came to the village in 1350, and left the village in 1361 when there were severe gales.

Pestile (n) cia
M.C.T.(er)x penta
miseranda ferox violenta
(discessit pestis) superset plebs pessima testis in fine qevent(us) (erat) valid(us)
(...h)oc anno maurus in orbe tonat MCCCLXI

Translation:


There was a plague
1000,three times 100, five times 10, 

a pitiable, fierce violent
(plague departed); a wretched populace survives to witness and in the end
a mighty wind, Maurus, thunders in this year in the world, 1361
