Round Barrow(s)


Excavated by Bateman on two occasions, 1843 and 1847. During which he unearthed the primary burial, a crouched skeleton, on the old ground surface in the centre of the barrow. A later burial was also found higher up in the mound, the human remains here contained within a cist.
B. Marsden also partially explored the mound in the early 1970's; he too found a burial on the old ground surface, as well as pieces of human and animal bones and a number of flint artefacts.
