Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


This group has been badly plough damaged since the 19th century when 17 barrows were recorded and excavated by the Yorkshire Antiquarian Club in the middle of the century and by JR Mortimer in the 1870’s. All the barrows were found to contain either cremations or several inhumations of men, women and children. Grave goods found included an 18.5 centimetre white flint dagger, a 12.7 centimetre bronze dagger, beakers, jet buttons, amber buttons and a jet ring.
