Forsyth/1996, 139--141: `...the graveyard of the old church (NGR NH 990584)' at Dyke, Moray. `It is now well back from the sea, from which it is separated by the thriving forest of Culbin. Old photographs of this 28 sq.km area of blown sand between the mouths of the rivers Findhorn and Nairn, show that up to the turn of the century it was a `desert-like wilderness' with dunes up to 30m high. ... Over the years a number of items, including shards of domestic pottery, beads and jet rings, dating to the Pictish period have been found amongst the dunes, not to mention the famous bronze snake armlet of the first or second centuries'.
