LINTON (Parish) Linton (Parish) Continued Most of these bones in these Tumuli as well as the Urns containing them, when exposed to the air dissolve into dust- About 75 years ago during the repairs of the church, a large grave was discovered, in which were 50 Skulls; all were equally decayed, and many of them bore marks of violence- It is conjectured that they belonged to individuals who had fallen at Flodden Field; the remains of many of whom, as is well Known, were Consigned to a Common grave in the Cemeteries of the nearest border parishes--
Close to the edge of Linton Loch on 16.11 antideluvian remains were discovered, namely The Skull & Horns of a Red Deer. the Head of a Beaver & various other things, now exhibited in the Kelso Museum- about 3 chains West of the place where the above were discovered. An Urn was dug up- supposed to have been Roman, but doubtful.
