​Caitlin Hutchison visits the Eassie Stone in Angus, Scotland

Doctoral candidate Caitlin Hutchison traveled to Scotland this summer with the support of the Unidel Louise Roselle Collections-Based Research Travel Award. She performed research for her dissertation, "The Irish High Cross: Landmark of Patronage, Power, and Prestige," in collections such as the National Museum of Scotland, as well as directly observing monuments in the field. While there, Caitlin also attended the 8th Annual International Insular Art Conference in Glasgow. As seen here, Caitlin climbed behind the glass to get a closer look at the Eassie Stone, an early medieval cross-slab in Angus, Scotland. Like the Irish High Cross, the monument combines universal Christian iconography, namely the cross, with images of hunters and warriors, as well as distinctly local (in this case Pictish) symbols.
