Archaeology Notes

NH79NE 14 7676 9745

(NH 7676 9745) Stone Cist found AD. 1901 (NAT)

OS 6" map, Sutherland, 2nd ed., (1907)

The Revision Ordnance Survey Name Book (ONB), containing the authority for this entry, was destroyed during the 1939-45 war.

It is possible that a beaker was found in this cist.

Abercromby (1912) noted a Type B2 beaker, 5 1/2 ins tall, found in a bank 'near Dornoch'. Crichton Mitchell located it to Cambusmore and said it was in Dunrobin Museum in 1934 (Mitchell 1934); but Clarke, in 1970, claimed that it was in Inverness Museum, mislabelled 'Alness, Dalmore'. It belongs to his group N/NR.

J Abercromby 1912; M E C Mitchell 1934; D L Clarke 1970.
