Viking gravestone found on the Isle of Barra. Although the original is now housed in Edinburgh, this is a copy housed in the restored chapel that sits aside the ruined 12th century church in Cille Bharra.This is the best piece of evidence for the acceptance of Christianity by the Norse settlers in Barra. The original stone is in the National Museum of Antiquities in Edinburgh. The meaning of its runic inscriptions appears to be: "After Thorgerth, Steiner's daughter, this cross was raised"
