The front cover of this issue shows the legendary St John's Celtic cross on the sacred Island of Iona, off Scotland's West Coast. The original cross was carved in the 8th century. Further articles in this issue include an account of the Island of Lindisfarne, also known as Holy Island, off the coast of Northumbria, famous for the magnificent illuminated 7th century illuminated Gospels created by the early Celtic monks on the island. There is also an account of Ancient Sites on the Island of Jersey in The Channel Islands, a description of the 10th century Duleek High Cross in Co. Meath, Ireland, and much more.
