Abstract


A provisional account of the discovery of a hexagonal stone-built chamber with wall recesses and a passageway. The roof would have comprised overlapping stone slabs supported by four pillars. Quantities of disarticulated human bone were recovered from within the chamber. A brief note on the bones suggests they are mainly immature.
