The 12 Seals of Christmas #10
Still seals, but this time, they are sketches of Orcadian seals made by Hugh Marwick.
Mr Marwick was a Rousay born historian, archaeologist and teacher. He was rector of Kirkwall Grammar School for 15 years and published works on Orcadian place names which we still use constantly in the archive.He was born in 1881 and died in 1965.
We like to draw seals too.
