Abstract


Report on the excavation of a rough circle of 10 stones one of which was carved. A causeway leading from the circle to an outlying slab was identified. It had cup and ring mark carvings. A stone cist within the circle contained burnt human bone and the remains were identified as an adult and a child aged six to eight years. Finds included pottery, charcoal (mainly hazel) and a flint flake.
