Giant's Grave (Milton Hill) (Long Barrow) by Chance Giant's Grave, Milton Lilbourne

This is one of the many Wiltshire long barrows excavated in the nineteenth century by Dr. John Thurnam.

Built of chalk, it is 90 m long, 20 m wide and 2 m high.

At its eastern end it covered a pile of bones of three or four people, one of whom had died from a blow which had cleft his skull.
