Archaeology Notes

NM54SE 8 5705 4315.

Several short cists were found in 1882, during the excavation of the foundations of what was formerly the Free Church at Salen. One of them contained an all-over corded beaker, two fragments of a copper blade, a flint knife, and a flint scraper. Sherds of the beaker and the other objects are preserved in the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland (NMAS) (Accession nos: EQ 269-272).

J Duns 1883; D L Clarke 1970; J N G Ritchie 1973; RCAHMS 1980.

NM 5705 4315. The Free Church at Salen is now a private house occupied by Miss Turner, who said that about 1950 when workmen were making a drive some 20m to the W of the church a 'coffin' was found but was quickly covered up again. Mr Macdonald (Salen) has found several worked flints in the same area.

Visited by OS (D W R) 3 May 1972.
