Item image
A short cist was discovered in October 1997 while landscaping a garden. The cist was disturbed but the original structure (dims c. 66m x c. 64m; H 0.3m) was constructed of at least four side-slabs with an oval capstone (dims 0.75m x 0.45m; T 0.1m), and it had a hard pebble clay floor. The contents of the cist had been disturbed and only a small quantity of cremated bone representing an adult female and a neonatal were recovered in addition to 15 fragments of a shouldered bowl with poorly executed comb-impressed decoration.
