Aberlemno standing stones

These are Pictish carved stones dating from around 1300-1500 years ago.





This was a time when society was changing. Pictavia was transforming from a belief system based on a relationship and understanding of nature as being all powerful to embracing the coming of Christianity.


These stones reflect that transition.












Some have only older symbols whereas some have a 'modern' celtic Cross on one side.


Over the next couple of weeks I'll share some thoughts on these images and how they relate to our understandings of stories and folklore.
