Bronze Age burials at Low Stead Farm (Longhoughton)

Between approximately 2500 and 3500 years ago, during what archaeologists call the Bronze Age, people buried their dead in several stone cists on land which is now part of Low Stead Farm, Howick. The cists were opened in the 19th century. One of the cists contained a pot, which can be seen today at Alnwick Castle Museum.
