The magnificent Pictish cross-slab from Hilton of Cadboll in Easter Ross, carved between 700 & 800 AD, stood on land now owned by the Glenmorangie company.
It is on display as the centre-piece to the Early People gallery at the National Museum of Scotland.
At some point the slab broke away from its base, and its Pictish cross-face was chipped off. Then before AD 1676 this face was re-carved as an (unused!) headstone for Alexander Duff and his 3 wives.
Recent excavations at the Hilton of Cadboll chapel site, where the stone originally stood, uncovered the upright base in the ground and over 3,000 scattered fragments of the original cross-face.
In 2010 The Glenmorangie Research Project CT-scanned and created 3D digital models of the re-discovered fragments.
Using these virtual fragments we can piece back together the missing cross-face...
...a job larger than one person.
