Abstract


Report on two incised slabs. The first slab of brown sandstone from Kinkell, Aberdeenshire had a crude engraved effigy of an armed man with a marginal inscription and two shields. It is a rare depiction of Scottish armour in the early 15th century. The second slab, also of brown sandstone is from Cross Kirk, Peebles. The incomplete slab depicts an ecclesiastic with parts of a marginal inscription. It has been dated to the 16th century, contra the inscription which reads "Shrine of St Nicholas 1260."
