Archaeology Notes

NH66NW 18 61896 68092

Location formerly entered as NH 6190 6808.

At NH 6190 6808 on the brink of a low escarpment, is a bowl-shaped tree-grown mound measuring 25.0m in diameter and 4.0m high. The content of sand and gravel visible in the S is similar to a glacial deposit, but its shape, size and situation strongly suggest it is a barrow.

Visited by OS (A A), 23 August 1972.

This boat-shaped mound may be a burial-cairn.
