The Pagan Lady

These two images were taken recently in the Manx Museum Viking Gallery.

Excavations in Peel Castle in 1982/87 revealed an extensive graveyard. The most spectacular finds were the 10th century grave of “The Pagan Lady” which included a fine example of a Viking necklace of which there is 71 differently coloured beads.

The replicate of the original beads can be seen on the Pagan Lady in both of my images.

Couldn’t help adding another image from the flooding and high tide at Fenella Beach in Peel.

Standing on the footpath at the side of Peel Castle and looking over Fenella Beach towards a busy Peel Beach.

The mountain centre left is Greeba Mountain and the hill to the right of the image is Slieau Whallian.

The spire in the centre right of the image is St Germans Cathederal which is why Peel is classed as a City!

The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 20mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
