Archaeology Notes

NG09NE 14 centred on 0673 9936

NG 06910 99512 Amid dense undergrowth and on top of a substantial sand mound which contains the old part of Losgaintir cemetery, a gneiss slab 13mm high. The stone appears to be an attempt to illustrate a seal's outline with other features crudely shaped to this effect, the piercing being the eye of the seal.
