Round Barrow(s)


25 x 16m barrow opened by bateman in 1851 and described in his 'Ten Years Digging.....' volume. He recovered a burial of human and animal bone within the mound and on the old ground surface, beneath the mound, he found 4 disturbed inhumations accompanied by a beaker and a bone artefact. Around this central burial were 5 concentric arcs of stone.
