Maeshowe: The Application of RTI to Norse Runes

Nicole Smith, Gareth Beale, Julian D Richards & Nela Scholma-Mason
The chambered cairn and passage grave at Maeshowe is well known for its runic inscriptions. Since its construction around 2800 BC (Renfrew 1979: 203), the site has had a long history of re-use and disturbance (Davidson & Henshall 1989: 61-2, 145). The presence of several runic inscriptions in the main chamber and the SE side-chamber indicates later Norse re-use, probably during the mid-12th century (Barnes 1994: 215).
