Archaeology Notes

NT27SW 6 2289 7362.

Two contiguous short cists, each of which contained a food vessel, were found in 1901 when Succoth Place was being constructed, c. 60' from the angle at which Garscube Terrace and Succoth Place meet. The first cist was found on or just before the 13th May 1901, and the second cist was opened on the 20th May, when it was necessary to cut into its cover-slab to put in kerbing for the road. (This would locate the find spot of the cists to NT 2289 7362). The food vessels were purchased for the NMAS. (Acc Nos: EE 84 and EE 85)
