Abstract


During the early Bronze Age the site had proved attractive as two short cists of this period, each containing an urn of the food-vessel type, have now been discovered on it. A third and smaller cist filled with earth was also found between the others. Besides these a human skeleton without any enclosing structure was recently found, but there was nothing associated with it by which its period could be determined. In addition to the cists mentioned, another containing unburnt human remains and a food-vessel was unearthed at Cowdenhill about 300 yards to the west. The latest cist contained two skeletons and a complete urn. The skeletons were a young adult male and a child aged around seven years.
