Eston Nab


Eston Nab (Hillfort) by fitzcoraldo Figure 1 is an illustration of a stone taken from a tumulus on Bernaldby moor (?Barnaby) near Eston nab about two hundred yards from the encampment
"I found the outline of a noble urn (fig.2 ) standing upright, covered with a large sheild shaped stone curiously carved in the interior with some metallic instrument, representing, as I concieve, either a rude armorial bearing or a religious device"
"Figure 3 is a small urn, preserved entire in the possession of Dr. Young of Whitby, discovered a few years ago at Upleatham. It contained ashes similar to the exterior urn. Figure 4. represents a stone found near Court Green, in one of the tumuli I opened"
