Excerpt from Some Accounts of the Bewcastle Cross: Between the Years 1607 and 1861
Since opinion concerning the date of the Bewcastle Cross has varied so widely, I have thought that the considerations brought forward in my monograph, The Date of the Ruthwell and Bewcastle Crosses might fitly be supplemented by such a series of de scriptions and Opinions as would enable the student who might not have ready access to a large library to trace the history of antiquarian thought on this subject. The present selection will be found, I be lieve, to contain the most important papers and pas sages relating to this monument between the year 1607, when Nicholas Roscarrock, a guest of Lord William Howard's at Naworth Castle, touched upon it in a letter to Camden, and 1861, when Father Haigh resumed his earlier study in his Conquest of Britain.
