Archaeology Notes

HP61SW 18 c. 647 147.

(Area: HP 647 147) 'Fustrie's Knowe', about 300yds NW of 'Bartle's Kirk' (HP61SW 4) 'is a high mound of decayed sandstone... formerly used as a burial-place. Here some forty years ago, the crofter whilst delving about and around the mound came ..... upon some thirty urns of different sizes and shapes, standing in rows; but as little or no interest was then taken in such relics, they have unfortunately been totally lost.'

T Edmonston 1873.
