(Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales)SILIAN, WALES—Nikki Vousden of the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales and Roderick Bale of the University of Wales were out for a walk when they found a stone inscribed during the medieval period with a linear Latin cross and a lozenge-shaped ring. The stone was sitting in a stream near St Sulien’s Church, and the water helped bring the carvings to their attention. The church was built in the late nineteenth century on the foundations of a medieval church building, but the stone, which had been recorded and studied, had been lost. The stone has been moved to the interior of the church.
