Treasure Map?

From the Mag 185

Shall we toe the line?
These, on paper, make a map
with grids overlaid...

whilst others etched in the past
link those far times with today.

Thanks to Tess,  this week I read some Wiki background on the magical name 'St Ninian's Isle' and discovered photos of hidden, silver treasures that were unearthed in our lifetime. The one I've posted here had such a plethora of curved and straight lines, that I couldn't help but link it to those on the map, so you could see the connection, too. Enjoy!
Please click on the photo to see the true beauty of the silver work. :)

  1. Well done and well read. If you look at Google satellite images for St. Ninian's it's easy to see it was once crofted. The boundaries of snallholdings are clear. Some treasure for a crofter, though!

  8. maps always seem to have a very 'old' feel to them, especially when you realize how far back in civilization the map might trace...
