Abstract:
NT 774009. Total excavation of a four-poster stone circle (see 72/1372) is reported. As commonly found in four-posters, the SW stone was the most massive. It and the three others stood on the circumference of a 14ft-diameter circle whose central area was occupied by a probable ring-cairn surrounding a much-disturbed ?cremation space. Acid soil conditions would have destroyed any pottery, and charcoal was restricted to flecks only. A single scraper was found, and the stones bore no cupmarks. No relationship with Thom's megalithic yard was observed, and the lack of good celestial alignments confirms Thom's findings in relation to this class of monument. The Three Kings was probably erected by ten to twelve people during the later 2nd millennium BC.
