The 12 Seals of Christmas #5
Three Seals at once!
Orkney Archive Reference D1/1030/1 is a Charter dated 1566 by Alexander Deik, provost of the Cathedral of Orkney,in favour of Gilbert Balfour of certain lands in South Ronaldsay. The document is in Latin.
It looks like two seals belonging to Adam Bothwell, then Bishop of Orkney, have been attached.
SEAL: Has Adam Bothwell been married to a supermodel? I doubt it! Amateurs.
ARCHIVER & DUSTY: *soothingly* Shhhhhhhh. Hush now.
