My latest post at Heart Of The Kingdom describes a carved stone from Fairlie in North Ayrshire, an example of early medieval sculpture from the kingdom of Strathclyde. It dates from the 10th/11th century and is quite well-preserved. Anyone who likes Pictish sculpture will see familiar themes in the carvings on this stone – even though it is a long way from the heartlands of the Picts. Its sculptor was a craftsman of the ‘Govan School’ of stonecarving and probably a Briton of the Clyde.
