Cow Common

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery

Miscellaneous

From "Companion into Gloucestershire" - R.P. Beckinsale (1947 5th edition Methuen):

"Near Eyford Hall some rough, grassy islands in a ploughed field mark the sites of four round tumuli and two Long Barrows, one of which contained parts of the skeletons of twenty people and a dog - just as if they had succumbed when mowing a meadow."

I think this must be Cow Common, as the only concentration of long/round barrows near Eyford, but it doesn't match the excavation report as mentioned in Grinsell and O'Neil's "Gloucestershire Barrows".
