The Stone of Destiny, known variously as the Stone of Scone and/or Jacobís Pillow, was traditionally claimed to have been a stone upon which the patriarch Jacob/Israel laid his head while he rested on his trip through the valley of Beth-el. During that rest, Jacob had a dream in which he saw a ladder reaching from the earth to Heaven, upon which angels ascended and descended. The stone was, in later years, transported from the Holy Land to the island of Eire/Ireland and thence to Scotland. The story of the Stone of Destiny comes to us through a series of legends associated with the Sons of Mil.
