Sites and Monument Record: Woodgate Cist (SMR 126)

"a rude stone coffin, made of flags, about two-thirds of the ordinary length, placed nearly perpendicularly, and containing the bones of an adult person, was found" in about 1800 according to the 2nd ed of Nimmo's History. In that volume it is also dated to 1301, but on what evidence is not known. Perhaps it was thought to have an association with the Wars of Independence. Despite the implication in the description that this was a short cist it is probably best to keep the original attribution.
