Abstract


Three urns were buried together and two of them appear to have had sandstone lids. Fragments of cremated bone adhered to some of the sherds. A large flat stone nearby had four cups and a chiselled groove. An unusual structure of small sandstone pieces may have been a cist but the nature of its construction is not typical and it was empty. A block of sandstone was scored by a number of grooves cut by a chisel. Its date and function is unclear.
