Ireland: Co. Meath, Monasterboise, 4

An ancient sundial, and at 18', the tallest high cross in Ireland. The top of this cross was broken off at some point, so there are varying degrees of weathering on this cross. You can just see a bit if the round tower in the background.

This monastery was attacked by, you know, the Vikings. They took everything that was of worth to them and burned all the books.
