Description: Following the battle of Philiphaugh on the 13th September 1645, when an army of Covenanters, commanded by General David Leslie, defeated the Royalists under Montrose, prisoners were kept captive here. They were largely from an Irish contingent and, despite having been promised quarter, they and their camp followers and children were taken to Slain Mens Lea nearby and slaughtered in cold blood at the instigation of the ministers accompanying the covenant army. During excavations in the early 1900's many skeletons were found.
