Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Scandanavian Stones and Crosses
We have a number of Angle-Saxon and Anglo-Scandinavian stones and part crosses. Surveyed by Guy Points, writer of a number of works on the subject, he says "The decoration on all this stonework is for the most part clear and easy to identify; the interlace, plait-work, ring-chain, knot-work in particular. In addition it has a free-arm crosshead with a human representation rarely seen on any other crosses. The two sections of the cross-base provide a good example of where both the top and sides are decorated with distinctive animals." Guy Points summarises his Gazetteer entry about St Bridget's stones in the document below.
