Notes: (8) Two Cists at Golspie, Sutherland
With a Note on the Skeletal Remains
During the removal of sand from a quarry approximately 100 yds. due W. (mag.) from Golspie school in September 1956, a cist of unusual construction was exposed containing a contracted skeleton. After examination by Professor R. D. Lockhart, quarrying was restarted only to halt with the discovery of a second cist approximately 6 ft. from the first. This cist was somewhat more orthodox in form, and the contents were removed by Dr I. D. Pennie of Golspie. Subsequently the writer visited the site and examined the surrounding area for further burials without success. Quarrying has continued since then but nothing more has been discovered.
