Archaeology Notes

NH92SE 54 9605 2034 centred on NH 9605 2034

The cropmarks of a barrow cemetery with at least 12 round and square barrows has been revealed by oblique aerial photography (RCAHMSAP 1995) scattered across two fields 500m NW of Mains of Garten farmsteading (NH92SE 44). There are at least six square barrows measuring about 4-7m across. The internal diameters of the round barrows, visible mainly in the SW field are approximately 8-10m. At least nine of the barrows have a visible central pit, which may represent burials.

Information from RCAHMS (KJ) 28 July 1999.
