Round Barrow(s)

Miscellaneous

This grouping of Bronze Age round barrows would appear to have been reused during Roman times - if reported finds are anything to go by - which, of course they probably are. According to Coflein, the southern most round barrow is:

'A sub-circular barrow, 25m E-W by 23m, one of a group of at least four, said to rise 1.7m to 3.0m high: digging into one of these barrows, reported in 1695, produced five 'urns'& a great quantity of burnt bones & ashes; five coins, including an issue (possibly gold) of Otho, are said to have been found here.'
