Archaeology Notes

NT51NW 53 5180 1745

NT 5180 1745 A shaped piece of sandstone carved with a human figure in relief was found in the garden at Appletreehall around 1935, and has now been donated to National Museums of Scotland. It is 200mm high, and has an over-large head (damaged), wears a tunic which flares below the waist, and stands full-face with its arms away from its sides, the forearms reaching downwards along the edges of the slab. There are incised objects below the figure's arms on either side, but their identity is unclear.

Parallels suggest it is likely to be a relief of a Romano-British deity.

Daybook no: DB 1995/80.
