Object Detail


Cross slab which lay flat over a grave. It was carved in the 1100s, and found in the burial ground at Low Craiglemine, south west of Whithorn. The sculptor has cut away the background to reveal the outline of an irregular cross with wedge shaped arms and a long shaft. This slab is distinctive as there is a noticeable lack of monuments designed to lie flat at Whithorn and in the surrounding area. On display in the Whithorn Priory Museum, Whithorn, Dumfries and Galloway.
