Archaeology Notes

NS56SW 13 541 608.

NS 541 608. A single standing stone was removed in advance of road widening. The straight-sided block had its base set on yellow sandstone. Immediately above the bedrock small stones and earth had been packed against the W and N faces of the standing stone. On top of the packing were two boulders set at right angles to wedge the sides of the stone. No burials or cremations were found.

H Adamson 1973.
