|2500bc-14/1300bc||A round barrow with no ditch but with mound of burnt earth and charcoal, a possible two period monument. In the centre a cairn of flints covered a primary (?) deposit of burnt bones beneath a broken inverted Early/Middle Bronze Age urn of the food vessel type.
Towards the eastern edge of the central cairn, 5.5m from the centre, was a secondary deposit of burnt bones 0.6m above the natural surface, and nearby an A/Bi Beaker. The cairn was c14m wide and had a retaining circle of larger stones placed c0.9m apart. The burnt earth mound was probably set over the cairn after this second interment. [Kirwan C].
