Abstract


The Cistercian Abbey at Dundrennan (NX747 474) has a very large collection of ex situ carved and moulded stones. While this collection was being catalogued (2003–6), a group of about 20 pieces, most of them of a substantial size, were found to be related and are now stored in one of the vaults along the west side of the cloisters at Dundrennan. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that these fragments came from a two-sided screen with miniature vaults and a processional doorway, to discuss sources and to date the screen.
