New website for carved stones

Over at my other blog Heart Of The Kingdom I’ve just posted news of a recently launched website about the carved stones at Govan.

This superb collection of early medieval sculpture is a must-see. The famous Sarcophagus and the hogback tombstones alone would make a visit worthwhile, but there are 25 other stones as well. Their home in the old parish church at Govan is an easy place to get to if you’re ever in the Glasgow area with an hour or two to spare.

The new website is part of a major project aimed at improving how the stones are displayed and interpreted. It can be found via a link at my blogpost. Alternatively, go there directly by clicking the image below.
