Glasgow Boy starts his latest post on the Loch Ness Monster as follows:
“An interesting headline from the British Library website: ‘Researchers at the British Library have found sensational evidence for the existence of the Loch Ness Monster. Hidden within the pages of a 12th-century manuscript is not only a description but also a drawing of the beast known to millions as Nessie.’
GB continues: “Researchers at the library claimed to have unearthed a manuscript featuring a cleric by the name of Walter of Bingham whose travels to Scotland were recorded in the 12th century manuscript ‘Itinerarium Scotiae’. The faded but now restored picture shows a hapless individual being dragged into the depths of Loch Ness by the monster.”
But, as GB also notes: “Before Nessie researchers jump up and down, you may want to note the date of the article.”
Yes, indeed you may!
