Abstract


The burial of an adult male accompanied by a complete N4/Step ?4 beaker within the cist and sherds of an indeterminate beaker on the capstone is described. A review of the evidence suggests that the same beaker  burial pattern existed in north-east Scotland as has been observed in east Yorkshire.
