Wittengenstein's grave

In June 2007 a number of lettercutters from USA, UK and Australia attended a masterclass hosted by Eric Marland in his Cambridge workshop in the middle of Ascension churchyard. Among the famous interred in the graveyard is the philosopher Ludwig Wittengenstein. Still students and travellers leave flowers and coins as a tribute to this extraordinary individual.
