The field in which the site has a curvilinear boundary on its E side, and it is possible that this was the original boundary of a cemetery. Portions of a number of situ burials were also visible in the section faces of the foundation trenches. All of these burials were extended and aligned W-E. At least seven individuals, four males and three females were identified (Cahill & Sikora 2011, vol 2, 385-387). Compiled by: Geraldine Stout Date of upload: 12 march 2013
