Notes: (2) Summary of the Examination of Skeletons from Cists at Lunanhead
The first cist contained the skeleton of a man aged upwards of forty years. He had osteoarthritis and had suffered a deep wound on the left side of the forehead some time before death, which had involved the bone and left a suppurating sore. Death had been caused by a deep wound on the front of the left thigh, inflicted by a sharp, heavy weapon which had cut deeply into the femur and had soon proved fatal. The second cist also contained a male skeleton aged upwards of forty five years with a lot of dental disease.
