The best-preserved and most impressively carved of all the surviving Viking-age grave markers known as ‘hogbacks’. This is one of over 20 early medieval stone sculptures discovered during the Victorian rebuild of St Thomas’ Church, Allertonshire, North Yorkshire. For a full academic description, see James Lang’s account in volume 6 of the Corpus of Anglo-Saxon Stone Sculpture https://chacklepie.com/ascorpus/catvol6.php?pageNum_urls=34 . Many thanks to The Reverend Jonathon Cooper for his kindness and patience.
