Pictish Dragon symbol stone recovered from East Mainland
« on: October 31, 2016, 10:15:22 PM »


Archaeologists have recovered a rate Pictish symbol stone from an eroding area of coastline in the East Mainland.

Coastal erosion in Orkney, and its effect on archaeology, is well-known especially during the winter months, when high tides and winds batter the shores.

Following one of these storms, Stromness-based archaeologist Dr Hugo Anderson-Whymark was examining an area that had suffered during a south-westerly gale and found a stone projecting precariously out of an eroding bank.

This stone, on closer examination, had obviously been worked and designs were visible.
