Artificial Mound


At various times RCAHMS NMRS record no. HY50SE 1 at HY56590369 has been seen as a burnt stone mound and a turf mound with burnt earth, but is no longer believed to be any kind of burnt mound. It has steep sides and is thought to have been circular until the second quarter of the 20th century when the owner 'quarried' the west end, leaving it slightly crescentic. He found two foot-high earthfast stones about five feet apart and some large stones besides. It now measures 10m by 12m and stands 1.2m high. wideford Posted by wideford
