Archaeology Notes

NC70SE 29 7667 0438 and 7672 0445

NC 7667 0438; NC 7672 0445. Two hut circles 'A' and 'B' respectively. 'A', of unusual definity though peat-overgrown, is 13.0m in diameter between wall centres. An earthfast stone slab 0.7m high edges the W side of a well-defined entrance gap in the S.

'B', ill-defined and obscured by peat, is 11.0m NW-SE by 9.5m between centres of a wall, much depleted around SE arc. The wall appears to expand to 5.0m at a probable entrance gap in the S though this effect could be due to tumble.

About 20.0m to the NE of hut 'B' an arc of peat-overgrown rubble and a large slab on edge in the S arc may indicate the remains of a hut with portal stone.

Contemporary cultivation is marked by one or two stone clearance heaps around hut 'B'.

Surveyed at 1:10,000.

Visited by OS (J M) 11 August 1975.
