Blackman's Cross - Part 2 (No. 43)





Blackman's Cross - Part 2 (No. 43)


A broken slab found near the middle keeill in the churchyard. On one side there is a cross pattee within a circle. Across the lower section are some Anglican Runes, one is the name (Blak)gmon. It is believe that both this slab and No. 42 were put up for Blackman. One part would have been at the foot and the other the head of a grave. The name is saxon, but the style of the slab is Celtic. This cross is also from around the 8th century.
