North Knoll cairn (Ingram)

This small stone cairn was excavated by archaeologists in 1996 and 1997. They discovered that it was the remains of a late Neolithic or early Bronze Age burial mound, which had been built in two stages. A stone-lined grave in the centre of the mound contained a cup marked stone and late Mesolithic or early Neolithic flints. A study of the bones showed that at least five people had been buried in this grave. A later burial was found dug into the sound of the mound. This is a scheduled monument protected by law.
