Abstract

The Govan group of carved stones contains a number of standing crosses and cross-slabs; no other site in Strathclyde of this period has so many.(1) The finest of these is known as the 'Jordanhill' Cross, because it spent some time in the grounds of Jordanhill House during the last century.
