How important is the Stone of Destiny to Scotland? The web site of Scotland's Board of Tourism proclaims: "It is arguably the greatest symbol and touchstone of Scottish nationhood and, as such, has been a very potent icon for more than a thousand years. The Honours were among the most potent symbols of Scottish nationhood, and thus during Oliver Cromwell's occupation of Scotland in the 1650s, they were among his most sought-after targets. It is said that Jeremiah along with two daughters of King David's line escaped with the stone, and after a journey through Egypt, Sicily and Spain, the stone arrived in Ireland. Whatever its origins, whatever its form, Edward coveted this touchstone of Scottish nationhood. The Stone of Destiny, James Irvine Robertson, Scotland Magazine, Issue 37, March 2008.

And so when the monks deposited a chunk of coarse-grained red sandstone at his feet, the English king would have gaped in astonishment. The legendary talisman looked no different from the building blocks of the abbey, quarried from the hills around Scone.
