|Description ||The Cist of Via Mound on
Orkney at HY260158.
There is a waterlogged patch of ground going uphill and the feature is at the top of this. On CANMORE a mound HY21NE 4 formerly stood at HY260159 and in relation to my find it is worth noting that in 1928 a mound of stones (now gone) at the south edge of a pool of water was presumed to be its remains.|
RCAHMS archaeology survey section believe this cist may only relatively recently have come to the surface. Alternaively could be that the cist reported in the SE quadrant of the Stones of Via ditch is the same as the stone jumble supposedly gone from here - depends if ditch=enclosure.
