Beautiful 15th-cen. Murals Found Under Whitewashed Church in Wales

Dear Class,

Yet another late-medieval mural has been just discovered under 27 (!) layers of whitewash in a church in Wales.  Check out the BBC News Magazine story and video: http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-25214557.

The murals feature St. George slaying the dragon (teaching you what to do) and representations of the seven deadly sins (teaching you what not to do).
