Full Description

Small group of five mounds and two small quarried depressions 150m SE of the sheepwash. Three small round mounds between 3 m and 6m diameter, a crescent shaped mound 6mx5m and 1.2 m high and a linear mound 9mx5m and 0.7m high. Quarried depressions are small and shallow, less than 3m in every dimension. The quarries are too small to account for all the mounds and so may not be connected. [1]
