Pictish and Rare

Embedded for probably around 1300 years in a cliff in the East Mainland of Orkney was this decorated Pictish stone. Erosion revealed the stone with some exquisite markings which have been investigated at the University of Aberdeen. Several more images and full explanations are to be found on the BBC website.
