MacKenzie’s History Vol. 1 In MacKenzie’s History of Northumberland,
Vol. 1, P.381, the following appears – "In the
year 1800, as some workmen were levelling a barrow
about a quarter of a mile north from Bowsden
they found two urns inserted upon broad
flags, and containing bones which appeared to
have been partially burnt. Previous to this,
another funeral urn was turned up at Bowsden
Hollins" – The Sites where these Antiquities were
found can not now be pointed out.
