Fooling with Nessie

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!

    Interesting chimera depiction, but it doesn’t really fit the descriptions. 🙂 Apparently Nessie was a little more irritable back in the 12th century.
