Monument record MDR8562 - Cairn (T47), Stanton Moor, Stanton
Type and Period (1)
- CAIRN (Bronze Age - 2350 BC to 701 BC)
- None recorded
[SK 2477 6285]: T47. This feature first appears in the archaeological record depicted on a location map of numbered 'tumuli' on Stanton Moor (1). Although no excavation report was published for this cairn, it is known that some level of excavation was undertaken by the Heathcotes, probably during the period 1934-1938 (2). Subsequent field investigation by the OS Archaeology Division in 1962 failed to identify the monument. RCHME FIELD DESCRIPTION (3) SK 24768 62855:CAIRN The present cairn is an irregular oval-shaped, low, stony mound measuring 4m by 2.4 m and 0.2m max. height. It is made of mostly unconsolidated, large weatherworn stones and appears to have been completely excavated and rebuilt. Circumscribing the mound is a Heathcote excavation delineation trench. There is a probable funerary context for this monument.
