Flat Stone, Cairn, Bronze Vessels, Burial, Spear
Fourth Century, Roman
Workmen discovered under a cairn an ancient burial place, covered by a large flat stone. On removing this, they found articles including two bronze vessels, seventeen spear or axeheads of bronze, thirty to forty bronze bracelets and six bronze rings. The whole of these interesting relics are in admirable preservation, and are evidently of Roman manufacture, and so belong, at the latest, to the middle of the fourth century.
