shaft base

Image of the feature "VI. Loose Sculpture: Ex-situ stone in site museum: base of a shaft" at Dunfermline Abbey.

by James King.

A base of a shaft that was evidently set against a wall, with a tail that was presumably embedded in the wall; it is thus presumably from a feature such as a blind arcade. Above a square sub-base the base itself has a quadrant roll surmounted by a hollow.
