The GUARD Archaeology team unearthed an additional two empty cists at the farm in Stranraer.
The cists, which are ancient graves, indicated to the team that there was a possible attempt by the family of the young child to set aside graves near to the body.
The team also highlighted that stress indicators on the skeletal remains may have indicated a wider problem for the community at that time, perhaps a food shortage or onset of disease.
The report states that this implies that the community understood and planned an individual's burial practice well in advance of that person's death.
