The Rosemarkie Pictish Cross - Highland Objects Podcast Eleven

October 12, 2020

This Pictish cross-slab is fabulous – for its craftsmanship, its symbols and its Christian messaging. There are so many stories to share and questions to ask about its quarrying, design and context. Even its shape is unusual – it’s wider at the top than the bottom, giving the viewer the optical illusion that it is actually perfectly rectangular.
