Bute Noir Book 2018 meets Museum Artefact No. 6

IMG_0533No.6 in the series – ‘Last Rituals’ by Yrsa Sigurdardottir meets a Bronze Age food vessel. The last rituals for the Bronze Age residents of Bute would be burial with items such as this food vessel found in a cist at Little Kilmory. The Museum has a superb collection of Bronze Age artefacts, including the fabulous jet necklace buried with the Queen of the Inch.

Yrsa Sigurdardottir is Iceland’s Queen of Crime. ‘Last Rituals’ is the first in her Thora Gudmundsdottir series (and if you haven’t read of any of them you are in for a treat!) She will be in Bute Museum on Saturday August 4th at 12.30 and Rothesay Library at 7.30
