text: Between this site and Hange village is a rock-strewn slope pointed out as the site of a Siemi grave. "The rocks were gathered together by spells and they all flew to the grave and hid it.". In what must be the S.W. corner of the area there is a pile of smallish, even-sized stones, which looks not unlike a denuded long cairn, but no tradition attaches to it and it may be natural.
