Statue-menhir, St Martins, Isles of Scilly 3D Model
This statue-menhir is located in a remote part of Chapel Down, on the island of St Martins, Isles of Scilly. The current ‘Archaeology of Scilly’ guidebook calls this a “Celtic Idol”. It is situated in front of a chambered cairn, having been moved to this location after it was discovered in the 1940s and rediscovered in 1988. Suggestions have been made that this is could be a stone from a stone row, or a wheel-head cross from the nearby medieval chapel. It’s possible that it is both. Prof Charles Thomas considers it to be a ‘worked idol’ from the Romano-Celtic period with comparisons elsewhere in Europe.
