Scope and Content Sarcophagus at St Andrews Cathedral, St Andrews, Fife This sarcophagus is in the museum at St Andrews Cathedral. It is the finest example of Pictish sculpture in Scotland. It consisted of four panels that slotted into corner-posts. It was possibly used as a shrine or reliquary. This is a view of the side of one of the corner-posts. It is decorated in fine interlace patterns. The back of the stone (the side nearest the scale) is grooved to take the complete end panels. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
