Stockbridge Down

Round Barrow(s)


A fine urn from the barrow is displayed in the British Museum, in the "Enlightenment" Room.

Pastscape info:

Excavated in 1938 when a primary EBA inhumation with a copper awl was found, and a secondary MBA cremation with urn, awl and beads. There were two other secondary cremations, both unaccompanied and pottery fragments recovered included Beaker, MBA & RB (including Samian). The primary grave was surrounded by a ditch with five causeways.
