"cairn mound 7m diam, 1.2m high. A hollow in centre of the mound, measuring 2m long, 0.5m wide and 0.1m deep, suggests partial early excavation or robbing. The site is described by the dartmoor exploration committee as being the one in which a cist containing a piece of bronze was found. It is however more likely that sx57se/73 is the provenance of this find because that cairn more closely fits the description given in the excavation report (mpp). "
