Thanks for the links.
It certainly looks weathered enough to be from that era. But it's hard to tell sometimes
with all the wind and rain, the weathering can occur quite quickly in some places.
I have been able to read inscriptions on grave stones dating to the 13th century but in
other instances stones cut a few decades ago aren't legible. Depends how exposed they are.
You will come across many places in Scotland where German and Italian POW's were interred.
The Earls of Orkney will lead you to some very interesting links if you pursue them. Although
a norse possession until 1231 many Earls took Scots wives and had Scots names as well as
their norse ones. History has over-looked this. Many early viking explorers had multiple names.
The era of vikings started in the 8th century there.
