Tour Scotland Video Cross Slab Pictish Stone Abercorn
Tour Scotland video of a Cross Slab Pictish Stone on ancestry visit to Abercorn in West Lothian, Scotland. A Pictish stone is a type of monumental stele, generally carved or incised with symbols or designs. A few have ogham inscriptions. Located in Scotland, mostly north of the Clyde Forth line and on the Eastern side of the country, these stones are the most visible remaining evidence of the Picts and are thought to date from the 6th to 9th century, a period during which the Picts became Christianized.
