Seaty Hill

Artificial Mound


On the top of Seaty Hill is a shallow ditch and bank enclosing a low mound 66ft in diameter.
On excavtion it was found that 2 holes had been dug into the mound, one of which contained a crouched burial. Raistrick classified the mound and burial as Bronze age.
13 secondary burials had been inserted into the suface of the mound and were thought to be early Iron Age. A bone pipe was found in one of these burials. The pipe had been fashioned from a sheeps tibia which was perforated with three finger holes.
