Archaeology Notes

NC73NE 8 7903 3654.

At NC 7903 3654, amongst the stone clearance mounds of a field system (see NC73NE 2), is a probable cairn. It differs from its neighbours in that it is appreciably larger, 10.0m N-S by 9.0m E-W and 0.8m high, and is of regular rounded form. No cist or kerb is exposed; the mound like the adjacent clearance is completely obscured by peat. The position, on a slight change of slope, is neither advantageous nor untypical for a cairn.

Surveyed at 1:10,560.

Visited by OS (N K B) 26 April 1977.
