Archaeology Notes

NO64NW 21 626 491.

NO 626 491. Cropmarks near Boysack Mills, photographed by RCAHMS, were excavated in advance of gravel extraction. The excavations revealed a shallow ditch enclosing a square area, 11m across, presumed to have been a barrow, with the remains of a timber-lined central burial under large boulders; a similar square enclosure, and a circular one of comparable size, both already cut in half by the quarry; and a much larger circular enclosure bounded by a ditch, with a probable entrance to the E.
