Abstract


In digging a ditch on the crest of the ridge at the extremity of which stands\r\nBlackness Castle, two burials came to light. One grave contained cremated remains, the other unburnt bones which appear to have been accompanied by a bowl-shaped Food Vessel. The 'inhumation' is in fact two adult individuals, while the cremated bone comprises parts of an adult and a child.
