Anglo-Saxon/Irish Relations before the Vikings

David M. Wilson

British Academy

This chapter examines the influences in the early sculpture in the Isle of Man, particularly the crosses that were previously described as Celtic. It suggests that the inscriptions in the Manx sculpture epigraphically and linguistically relate the island to the lands round the Irish Sea, while their typology and style history provide rough chronological yardsticks. The findings reveal that most pre-Viking memorial stones can be found in cemeteries on the sites of keeills.
