Archaeology Notes

NH53SE 20 5716 3466.

A simple incised cross on a small sandstone boulder was discovered whilst clearing a rough, boulder-strewn bank for the nursery. The cross is 0.2m long and 0.13m wide, the incised line being 10mm wide and c5mm deep. Each terminal has an expanded triangular shape. The cross is centrally placed, high on the prepared face of the boulder, which measures 0.55m by 0.42m and 0.15m thick.

Retained by finders.

Mr and Mrs Davidson and G Harden 1989b.
