The Buried Chapel of Ensay

This photo is of the sand buried chapel at Manish on the north end of Ensay, which is visited in chapter 13 of book 2. The chapel was excavated and extensively studied by Dr A.E.W. Miles, and the findings written up in the British Archaeology Review, Series 212, 1989 (ISBN 086054673X). If you are interested there are some copies out there for sale, only $185 or so. A bit pricey for me, so I managed to find a copy of it in a library. There is a fascinating photo in the report that shows the altar of the chapel when it was excavated in 1971. I did not want to post it without permission, which would be hard to get as Dr Miles passed away in 2008.
