Abstract


The roof or covering of the cist was peculiar when compared with the coverings of similar cists found in Aberdeenshire, in that, instead of its being formed of one layer of stones, it consisted of many such stones arranged in three layers. One of the stones in the upper layer had carved markings on its underside. The cist contained a crouched adult male skeleton aged upwards of forty years, an incomplete urn and a quartzite implement. A detailed report on the skeleton is included.
