Round Barrow(s)


This "slightly mutilated" barrow is 1.8m high and about 30m across. An antiquarian excavation found a large flat capstone over a drywalled cist in the centre of the barrow. The cist contained a contracted inhumation, a flint knife and two barbed and tanged arrowheads. Next to the cist was a 0.6m deep pit paved with flat stones; it contained a cremation, two flints and five pieces of bone. Pottery and two small pieces of bronze were also found. No fairies.
