Add fieldnotes Add fieldnotes
A large, irregular and apparently ditchless bowl barrow situated in a field east of Rowbury Farm. Excavation by a Dr Palmer in the 19th century reportedly found only charcoal and ashes. The mound now measures circa 26 metres by 15 metres and is a maximum of 1.25 metres high, and has been considerably dug away onthe southwestern side. Numerous flint flakes have been reported from the surface around it ginger tt Posted by ginger tt
