Duggleby Howe


We visited this site on the first warm day of Spring, and were surprised how atmospheric this site was. It stands out brilliantly on the approach to the village. From it's summit you can appreciate how well positioned it is in the centre of a low valley, and can't help but wonder how much more impressive it would seem if it was still surrounded by its massive bank. The finds from the 19th C Victorian excavation (which took a whole 10 feet off it's summit) can be seen in the excellent museum in High Street, Hull. The displays on prehistoric East Yorkshire here are well worth a visit, especially for the Roos Carr figures ( now complete with the wooden penises that the Victorian curator removed for fear of offending the public).
