Archaeology Notes

NH28SW 3 2027 8119.

At NH 2027 8119 is a circular stone-walled hut on a W-facing slope. It measures c. 11.5m in diameter between the centres of a wall of indeterminate thickness which is partly obscured by peat. The N arc is mutilated, and the entrance is not evident. About six stone clearance heaps to the W of the hut probably indicate associated cultivation plots. There are a few scattered shielings in the area to the S of the hut.
