ARO7: Beakers and Bunkers; Investigations at Rothes Golf Club

by Christine Rennie
with contributions from Torben Ballin, Beverley Ballin Smith and Susan Ramsay

Part of a shallow burial pit was uncovered during landscaping work at Rothes Golf Club in July 2011. Although no human remains were found, their existence is implied by the presence of an intact All-Over Corded (AOC) Beaker, sherds of a second Beaker and a piece of cramp recovered from the sieved spoil from landscaping. Charcoal from the unusually small AOC Beaker has been radiocarbon dated to 2462-2271 cal BC (SUERC-40938).
