Activities

Audits (June 2014 - July 2014)

NX 18452 58696 This substantial collection was partly catalogued, June – July 2014, and from the large numbers of stones examined, two groups emerged. Those stones associated with the chapter house, and those related to the vaults over the S transept. The stones that resemble chapter

house features are window jambs whose profiles can be found in the jambs and mullions of the chapter house windows. A larger group of vault ribs and springers have profiles that relate to the remaining springers over the E bays of the S transept.

This and other inventories of carved stones at Historic Scotland’s properties in care are held by Historic Scotland’s Collections Unit. For further information please contact hs.collections@scotland.gsi.gov.uk

to vault springers still in situ in the E bays of the S transept. An impressive group of tomb stones, ranging in date from 11th–16th century, is also displayed in the museum. This and other inventories of carved stones from Historic Environment Scotland’s properties in care are held by the
