Archaeology Notes

NS66SW 12 620 623.

A tumulus at Farme (NS 620 623) was destroyed many years ago. A "stone coffin" was found in it in 1768. (c/f NS66SW 28.)

F H Groome 1884.

Field investigation produced no information regarding the site of this tumulus. Although almost a mile separates the farms of Hamilton and Farme, the similarity between this and NS66SW 28 tends to infer one site only.

Visited by OS (J L D) 31 March 1954.

The RCAHMS (1978) consider that Groome (1884) is referring to the barrow described on NS66SW 28.

RCAHMS 1978.
