Situated on a slight rise in a fairly level landscape. Archaeological testing (02E1812) identified two spreads of burnt mound material (Hayden 2006), which were subsequently fully resolved (Hayden 2006a) under a different licence (03E0169). This was a thin spread of broken and burnt stone (diam. c. 6m) over four shallow pits filled with a thin layer of grey, charcoal-stained silt. A larger curving pit (L 3m; Wth 1m; D 0.3m) was filed with peat mixed with burnt stone. Three pits (dims 1.7m x 0.6m; D 0.4m to 2.2m x 1.2m; D 0.4m) were filled with peat with no burnt stone.
