Cooil Roi

Period: Unclassified

NGR Easting: 242010

NGR Northing: 480860

Description: Undated burial cists.

The Ordnance Survey 1:2500 First Edition mapping of 1867 marks two graves 300m ESE of Cooil Roi farm.

Kermode (1930) subsequently records the graves as pre-Christian, and BRS Megaw (director of the Manx Museum 1940-57) expressed the view to a Royal Commission field inspector in 1955 that they might have dated to the Bronze Age, based on a description he had been given: the inspector could find no trace or memory of them amongst local inhabitants, nor any sign of a burial mound in the vicinity.

The grid reference refers to the OS annotation, 'Graves'.
