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 drawing of the sarcophagus. It shows how the surviving fragments fit together. Three of the corner-posts survive, as does the front and one end panel. A small fragment of the other end panel also survives. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
