Iconographic studies of the Anglo-Saxon carving at Wirksworth, Derbyshire, have provided widely differing dates and interpretations. The identity and possible sources of the scenes are here re-examined, along with any implications this exercise may have for dating the piece. Consequent to this, the possible significance(s) of the scenes which could have influenced their selection and arrangement on the stone are discussed, demonstrating the potential for a female audience at Wirksworth.
