Lasers conserve Pictish treasures
The St Vigeans Stones from Arbroath are being cleaned by a specialist team of Historic Scotland experts in Edinburgh.
Earlier efforts at conservation, dating back to the 1960s, carried out using the best techniques of the time have now reached the end of their life.
The project removes the earlier repairs and uses more modern treatments.
The project is part of works to upgrade St Vigeans Museum of Pictish Carved Stones in Arbroath.
It is hoped the stones will be returned by the end of this year with the new-look museum reopening in time for Easter 2009.
Fresh research into the 38 stones suggests St Vigeans was once home to an important royal monastery.
