Abstract


Cairns associated with the hut-circles have been examined and are thought to be the result of clearing ground for agricultural purposes. Excavation of a further two stone-built hut-circles suggests the ground was levelled prior to construction. Internal features included postholes and fired stones. Finds included pottery, bone, daub, charcoal, worked stones and a grain of barley.
