Western Howes (Westerdale)



From "Discovering Prehistoric England" - James Dyer (Shire 2001):

"Three round barrows exist here. The largest is 10 metres across and contained a central core of stones 4 metres in diameter, among which two collared urns were found in the 1860s. One contained a cremation, miniature cup, bone pins and a stone battleaxe. The smallest mound contained a cremation. The third mound, 8.5 meatres across and 1.2 metres high, has not yet yielded a burial."
