Rare 1,200-year-old Pictish stone found

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A stone carved by Picts 1,200 years ago has been discovered in the Highlands.

Archaeologists said the find is of national importance because it is one of only about 50 complete Pictish cross-slabs known to exist.

Decorated with a number of symbols, the stone was uncovered at an early Christian church site near Dingwall.

It was used as a grave marker in the 1790s and discovered hidden in vegetation by Anne MacInnes of North of Scotland Archaeological Society.

The double disk Z rod motif has always fascinated me because it was never found anywhere else and resembles a Scythian- Sarmatian Tagma (Clan Emblem/ Animal Brand).

But if there is a connection. It's long lost.
