|Unfortunately all that remains of these sites are low mounds from the Bronze Age barrows that overlay the sites.
I have posted this site to illustrate the rich cultural activity that was taking place on the North Yorkshire Coast during the Neolithic and early Bronze Age.
The finds from the excavations included Neolithic and Bronze age flints, pottery, a couple of axes, a nice collection of jet buttons and a number of cup marked stones.
The Neolithic Cairn was excavated by B E Vyner & published in 1984.
The Wossit was excavated by B E Vyner & published in 1988.
A report of both of the excavations is available from Tees Archaeology.
