Fussell's Lodge (Long Barrow) by UncleRob Another fascinating interpretation of this site's various stages of use. In this version of events, there is a small house of the dead (with porch!) before the palisade is erected or the earth heaped up. It seems plausible that many other long barrows (but not all) had some wooden structure around the bones and in some cases (viz Nutbane) these had even been burnt prior to the heaping up of earth. Did one set of beliefs violently supersede another like the dissolution of the monasteries?
