Re: Dunfermline Abby
St Margaret of Malcolm Canmor was buried at Dunfirmline Abbey. She as
you know started that as a Royal burial site by Burying malcolm there. Her
chapel and remains were completly destroyed during the reformation by the
followers of Knox. She was "sainted" because she destroyed the old Celtic
Church by insisting they do it Roman Style. Burnt many Celtic libraries.
Nothing left now but a small fence showing where it used to be!!
