how cool is this??? i suggest clicking on it to make it big so you can admire the detail. it is a page from Lebor na hUidre: the Book of the Dun Cow, from the 11th - 12th C. it's in old and middle irish, with some marginalia in early modern irish. eee! see those holes down the bottom there - i suspect they're from holes in the cow. ew. . .
