Hogback Exhibited

Posted on

Hogbapic_0103cks are Anglo-Scandinavian in origin, dated between 10th and 12th centuries, and have been found across areas of northern England and Scotland. Generally accepted as carved stone grave markers, the ‘roof shingles’ on the sides indicate a ‘house of the dead’.

This copy, an accurate full-scale carved replica in local stone from an original in St Thomas’ Church, Brompton, North Yorkshire, has been exhibited in York
