Archaeology Notes

NS33SE 10 c.355 346.

An urn, containing fragments of human bones, was found near the house of Auchans (NS 355 346) some years ago by a workman digging in a small mound of gravel. The urn, of very crude workmanship, disintegrated on exposure, the remaining fragments were sent to the manse, where they may still be seen. There is no tradition of a tumulus having existed where the urn was found.
