Corfe Common

Round Barrow(s)


Details of barrows on Pastscape

A group of four Bronze Age bowl barrows on Corfe Common. All are extant as earthwork mounds, one possibly surrounded by a ditch. Signs of disturbance suggest that some excavation has occurred on at least one of the barrows in the past. A plain tripartite urn in the British Museum (accession number 1982.9-1.238) has been identified as coming either from one of these barrows or from one of the adjacent barrow groups (SY 98 SE 17 and 47). Scheduled.
