Grinsell reported from his source that..

... a Bronze Age stone cist was discovered by a crofter in his garden. Inside was a huge skeleton, so huge that when the crofter lifted up the skull he was able (as you would want to) to place it completely over his own head. What a ghastly idea.
He was unable to get any sleep at all until he reburied the bones.
