This small flake of stone was found during excavations north of St German’s Cathedral in 1983. The carving is incomplete as a result of the flake becoming detached from a larger stone, but shows a portion of interlace involving at least five strands, one of which is decorated with lightly cut parallel lines. The entire design has been executed using a knife and is likely to be a trial-piece or graffito.
Found St Patrick’s Isle, German, Glenfaba, Isle of Man (now part of Manx National Heritage collections)
Cross was scanned in situ with the result that some surfaces could not be captured or photographed.
