Rear Hogback Stone detail, Brompton Church
Rear Hogback Stone detail, Brompton Church
The rear of three hogback stones cemented into the floor of the church.
Dating back to the Anglo - Danish period (7th to 11th century) these are thought to be grave covers.
All show muzzled bears at each end.
Eleven hogbacks, some just fragments, were discovered when the 14th century chancel was rebuilt in 1867.
These three plus two fragments are inside the church; the other six are in Durham.
