Sounds like the Medieval times.
To ward off evil! I don't think so, if anything, those squiggly lines are telling the spirit world where to land!

Sounds like someone was practicing witchcraft secretly. Why would anyone scrawl things where no one can see them, unless they didn't want to be caught.

I agree with Paul on this one. If you want to ward off something/anything why would you put the anti-ghosts/evil where no one see it? Doesn't make sense.

It makes perfect sense. They were secretly practicing witchcraft.

Maybe the floor boards had been replaced over the centuries. But your right- the story doesn't make a lot of sense.

You guys are right, some naughty person was hiding their cult signs. Then again, they could be a child's scribble for all we know.

I doubt a child scribbled the lines. I'm leaning toward witches in the castle. Maybe the King's wives?

We may never know who made the marks and the meaning of them. 

I agree. Squiggly lines could mean anything especially if they'be been hidden. It's no wonder why they call the era-medieval!

Interesting...

It is typical of witchcraft for someone to hide conjuring relics within a house, and close to the people it wants cursed.
