Ascott Under Wychwood Barrow

Long Barrow


This barrow was excavated between 1965 and 1970. The bones from between 46 and 49 individuals were found. One skull is said to have an embedded projectile injury. The remains are now stored in the Natural History Museum.

I read somewhere that the stone chamber was removed and now forms a display within Woodstock museum.

I`ve checked with the museum and the stone chamber is no longer on display, but is lying on pallets in their stores.
