Noon Hill


Noon Hill (Cairn(s)) by Devine As with the Winter Hill cairn site, Noon Hill was first excavated in 1958. It was found to consist of two concentric stone circles measuring 10m and 16m in diameter. These features formed the two outer structural walls which were covered with turf, to create the burial barrow. Inside the barrow mound fragments of burnt human bones were found, along with two flint arrowheads and a flint sacrficial knife. The site was subsequently dated to the late Bronze Age, around 1100BC.
