Abstract


The discovery of a few pottery sherds happened during machining and it was clear that a group of at least seven cinerary urns had been destroyed. An eighth urn was discovered along with deposits of cremated bone. There were also traces of a probable cairn and another inverted urn. Parts of at least four urns were recovered and a minimum of three individuals were represented among the cremated bone.
