Early Iron Age
A group of five urns containing cremated human remains were found in a cluster at Kingskettle. One of the deposits included two barbed arrowheads which were calcined. It is suggested that the arrowheads may have been the cause of death of the associated individual. A very well constructed short cist contained the remains of a mature adult male. He was accompanied by a small thin plate of corroded iron.
