Seamer Beacon

Round Barrow(s)


"In the central cist of a barrow near the Beacon on Seamer Moor, the floor of which was 7 1/2 feet below the top of the mound, Lord Londesborough discovered a vessel containing ashes and teeth. Nine feet from the central grave was a large stone embedded in the natural soil, at one corner of which lay a vessel of type 2 . It also held the ashes of an animal or human being, and close to it were calcined human bones. Forty five feet from outside of the barrow, a stone circle surrounded the cist."
