Archaeology Notes

NT75NE 16 c. 7850 5535.

An empty cist of sandstone slabs, oriented E-W, was found in Little Duns Law field (centred NT 7850 5535) in 1890.

J H Craw 1923.

No further information was obtained in field investigation; it is very possible that the cist was found in the high ground to the NW of the field.
