Edible Archaeology: Aberlemno stone

1 min read


My daughter made this cake to celebrate Tom Gray receiving an honorary degree from Aberdeen University, awarded primarily for his work photographing the carved stones of Scotland and making this corpus readily available to scholars and institutions. It was also his 91st birthday! The cake shows the carved design of one of the Aberlemno stones, a series of early medieval standing stones in Angus.
