Description: Archaeology reports online series no. AR019.

A cist, which was in danger of being eroded by the sea, was excavated and recorded in September 2000 as part of the Historic Scotland’s Human Remains Call Off Contract by Orkney Archaeological Trust (OAT) and on behalf of the then Glasgow University Archaeological Research Division (GUARD). The cist, located on the foreshore at Lopness on the island of Sanday was constructed from large beach flags and contained an incomplete crouched inhumation within a midden-like fill. The remains were identified as those of a female of approximately 40 to 50 years of age. The cist appears to have been an isolated discovery although there is the possibility that a nearby upright may once have formed part of a similar structure.
