Prehistoric Burial Mounds (Beadnell)
Two cairns, mounds of stone, were found on Beadnell Links in 1970.They were between 4m and 7m wide. One contained a simple stone-lined grave, whilst the other contained a larger grave with the remains of at least nineteen individuals. The only dateable find was a Romano-British bronze brooch. This second grave is very unusual, and may have been a Bronze Age burial re-used in the Iron Age or Roman period.
