Abstract


At least four or five short cists and a possible long cist have been discovered in this area. The new discovery contained a poorly preserved crouched skeleton. The cover slab had fallen in and crushed the bronze armlet which is discussed in some detail. An irregular sandstone block with eight cup marks was found nearby.
