Archaeology Notes

NH69SW 28 60 94.

In the Maikle Wood (NH 60 94), to the N of the W end of the cultivated land, are some half a dozen mounds, overgrown with vegetation, measuring from 18' to 20' in diameter; also the indefinite remains of a hut circle, through which a road passes running E-W. Small mounds extend for some distance through the wood towards the W and N. In the SE corner of the wood, about 150 yards above the road, is a small group of ill-defined mounds.
