Abstract


Reports on work carried out over a number of seasons beginning in 1986 which revealed a complex funerary structure in the form of a pre-cairn monument with a central scoop, encircled by rings of timber posts, cremation pits and stone, followed by later pit and stone arrangements containing cremations. There are specialist contributions on: `The cremated bone' by Julie A Roberts (119--23); `The pottery' by Olivia Lelong (123--30) which includes Early Neolithic material; `Jet beads and button' by Ian A G Shepherd (130--2); and the `Stone artefact assemblage' by Tony Pollard (132--6) pieces of which may represent Mesolithic or Neolithic activity.
