Notes on Scottish incised slabs
Incised slabs form the largest class of sepulchral monuments of the Middle Ages now remaining in Scotland. They fall into two main groups, the West Highland slabs, in which Celtic influence strongly predominates, and the Lowland slabs, which follow the general style of contemporary monuments in Western Europe. The former are generally of mica-schist, the latter of sandstone. Four previously unreported late medieval examples are considered.
