Full Description

SK: 19.. 85..: Win Hill, Barrow: Food Vessel/Grooved Ware: During removal of a cairn in 1778-1779, a pot was found which has been suggested on the basis of a crude drawing (2) to be grooved ware (3) However whilst the shape and decoration are correct, the rim profile suggests food vessel. It was covered with a flat stone and contained human bones. Other authorities (5) have suggested that the pot was a food vessel. (4)
