Noble Friends, Especially Fellow Scots,

According to a BBC story, perviously unknown carved stone figures were
found in a tomb at Dunkeld Cathedral in Perthshire, Scotland. The figures
are in the tomb of Bishop Robert de Cardeny and date from the 1400s. They
were "lost" when the free standing tomb was later enclosed in a wall niche:

More about Bishop Cardeny can be found at

Dunkeld "Cathedral" is really not a cathedral, which is by definition the
seat of a bishop. It is a parish church within the Kirk of Scotland (a
Calvinist protestant denomination from which American Presbyterianism
evolved). Parts of the church building are still in use, but much of the
original church is in ruins: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunkeld_Cathedral
, and the congregation's own web site at https://www.dunkeldcathedral.org.uk

Yours Aye,
