LITTLE MEG

DESCRIPTION + /

The remains of a small kerb cairn, occasionally mistakenly referred to as a stone circle. It now comprises 11 contiguous stones, most of them fallen, surrounding the surviving traces of an earthen mound. Excavations in 1866 uncovered a cup-and-ring marked central cist containing an urned cremation. A spiral and concentric circles are also evident on one of the kerb stones. Note that the excavator also referred to a second mound circa 100 yards to the east, and another apparent stone circle (?kerb for a cairn) in the adjoining field nearer to Long Meg (NY 53 NE 5).
