It is not unknown for strange symbols to appear in this place of the dead; but equally not common.
Calling themselves ‘QR Codes’ , these icons give Quick Response to enquiries made of the Internet; alike to the advantage of a Hackney Carriage over a Stagecoach, they will take the seeker more swiftly and directly to their destination.
On encountering a ribboned code within the ancient ground, the visitor is invited to scan the code image using their smartphone . Providing said device is enabled with a code reading ‘app’ they will be taken as fast as their device allows to pages on this site dedicated to the remembered individual, monumental piece or other featured intelligence.
It is hoped that this novel and most modern tool for examining our funerary heritage will be of use to some, and – if warranted – this approach will be extended and further developed.
