Details of Yatesbury 4 on Pastscape

A Bronze Age bowl barrow, listed by Grinsell as Cherhill 10, "excavated" in 1849 by Merewether, who found a primary cremation deposit. Earlier digging in 1833 had uncovered two extended inhumations, presumably Saxon, accompanied by a knife, some beads, and a metal workbox with a chain. Prior to boundary changes, the barrow was listed as Yatesbury 4. It remains extant as an earthwork, though it is being ploughed.
