Badden Farm




From volume 94 of PSAS (1960/1) - an article about the cist slab found at Badden Farm, with its lovely carved lozenges. There's a photo at the end. The RCAHMS record says it's now in Glasgow Art Gallery and Museum. It doesn't seem to be on their website but I guess they've got a lot of items still to put on? It's rather unusual so you do hope it's safe don't you. Judging by the way the (pecked) grooves go through the pattern, that implies the pattern was inside the cist?

It was found on it's own with no other associated side slabs or cap stone ,but the grooves at either side suggest that it was part of a cist and facing inwards . tiompan Posted by tiompan
