Sex Pistols' graffiti hailed by academics

Graffiti by Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten may be of greater significance than the discovery of early Beatles recordings, academics have said.

Rotten, born John Lydon, drew on the walls of the band's London flat in 1975 after disliking a recent redecoration.

Now, a paper in the journal Antiquity is suggesting the flat is an important historical and archaeological site, as our Arts Editor Will Gompertz reports.
