Scope and Content Possible henge monument at Pict's Knowe, Dumfries and Galloway This possible henge comprises a low mound of sand encircled by a ditch and then a low spread bank. A single entrance opens to the E. During the excavation, stakeholes were found around the ditch terminals, while the ditch itself had been recut. The water-filled ditch of the henge is clearly visible on this aerial photograph which was taken before the excavations. The causeway across the ditch lies in the top left corner. The erosion and damage to the bank and the interior is also apparent. This possible henge lies on the floor of a valley. Cattle trampling, rabbit burrowing and tree roots had caused tremendous damage to the monument and, as a consequence, it was excavated in 1994 and 1995. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
