Scope & Content:

This irregular slab was found during excavations north of St German's Cathedral in 1987. One face bears an incised cross formed by interlinking two flat rings at right angles. This kind of knot is similar to many found on the more complex Manx monuments, but is unusual because of its curved rather than angular form. Other motifs on the stone may be graffiti or of greater significance, and include an incomplete grid pattern.
