Archaeology Notes

NH44SW 19 NH 4 4

A shale pendant found prior to 1877 on the Breakachy estate, bears an incised cross with hollowed armpits, ornamented by spiral-filled roundels and a panel of key-pattern. The reverse bears a tangle of zoomorphic interlace, a small incised cross, and a serpent, the last reminiscent in style of depictions on the symbol stones. It is now in Inverness Museum (INVMG 1945.0058).

Henderson 2004, 94-5.
