Cross-incised grave marker

Period:
Early Medieval
Description:

Cross-incised grave marker, with a relief cross on the other face. The rough dressing of the foot indicates that this small slab was designed to stand uprght in the ground.

 

It came from displaced material at Whithorn, but comparison with finds from Ardwall Island suggest it is an Early Christian grave marker.
