Chambered Tomb


The 2003 excavations uncovered a number of pits below slabs outside the cairn all containing cremated bone and charcoal.

In one of them (just outside one of the cairn's passage entrances) was an upturned collared urn and a fine battleaxe from early second millennium bce.

Further evidence of the continuing use of Neolithic monuments (or, at least, their location) into the Bronze Age.
