Sites and Monument Record: Kerse Hill Cists (SMR 123)
A small cemetery was discovered inside the annexe to the Roman temporary camp immediately before the construction of the M9 motorway. Four of the graves were stone built using dressed stone from an earlier building. Two of these contained skeletal material, and one was short possibly for a child. There were also four unlined graves.
The site is close to the Gilson Burn and may have given the area its name of "Polmont". It is possible that the burial ground is associated with the church of St Mary.
