The barrow, excavated by the quadrant method, showed, at the margins, a ring of stones with heavy curbs, all Lias limestone. The student of prehistory in his barrow-digging is driven to scrutinize every aspect of the structures, in order to see whether the differences they must show are likely to be within the same culture or not. The second mound at Coity, though correctly described as in a hollow in relation to the major topographical features, is actually on a slight hummock in the pasture fields extending towards the rivulet which runs into the Ogwr. On the whole the lithology of the cairns was similar, the mass of the material in each case being Rhaetic sandstone. But whereas the sandstone of Simondston was quarried, that is, levered out along bedding planes and joint planes, and of even sizes, the sandstone at Pond Cairn consisted of weathered boulders and pebbles, varying greatly in dimensions and evidently picked up from the surface.
