Sponsor a Pictish Stone
Come on in, join a special fundraising project. We need to save a newly discovered Pictish stone for the world! You can make it happen. We just need some money….
NOSAS (North of Scotland Archaeological Society) and the Pictish Arts Society are jointly raising funds for the conservation and management of a Pictish cross-slab that was recently discovered near Dingwall in Easter Ross. Further details of the stone and its discovery can be found on the NOSAS Facebook Page.
This stone has lain on the ground for some time, at least since the late 18th century, and has suffered some damage that will need repair. It will also need cleaning, recording and mounting. We will then get it transferred to Dingwall Museum, in Easter Ross. It will look great in the front window of the museum, and will make quite an attraction, not only for the museum but also the town. Not every Scottish town is so lucky as to have a Pictish stone!
"Easter Ross is home to many fine Pictish sculptured stones and yet this latest discovery still manages to add something new and exciting to that collection" John Borland (President of The Pictish Arts Society & Measured Survey Manager, Historic Environment Scotland).
