KING'S PALACE 032 "It is also worthy of remark that the names of some of the places in the district of Finhaven are curious. These are the King's Seat, the King's palace, & the King's Burn, all of which refer to the time when the lands were in the hands of Royalty. * At the King's Palace six clay urns were found about 20 years ago, but nothing is preserved of the style of their manufacture. * At the same place about six hundred cart loads of stones were taken away for building purposes, & it is supposed that as many more are still there."

Site of TUMULUS [King's Palace] 032 "There is a large Tumulus on the west side evidently artifial, being formed entirely of gravel brought from a distance. It is within the Camp facing the West Gate on the south side A little way within the gate rather towards the East you find the base of another tumulus, consisting of such materials as the last mentioned. The form of it is somewhat square, it goes by the name of The Kings House."

[Note]
Mr. Carnegie, the tenant is confident that the Urns were found in the outside Tumulus,
see Page 17, and that Mr. Jervise is in error in describing them as having been
found at the place called the "Kings Palace"
