(Centred at SU 19264675) Tumuli (AT). (1)

A barrow cemetery comprising of four barrows (Milston 10-12, 21a); three bowl barrows and one round barrow of `exceptional type'. The latter barrow was excavated by Colt Hoare who doubted whether it was sepulchral; no interment was located, the only finds were 'a few animal bones of deer etc'. (2)
Resurveyed at 1:2500. (3) The barrows are visible as earthworks on aerial photographs and have been mapped by both RCHME's Salisbury Plain Training Area NMP and EH's Stonehenge WHS Mapping Project. (4-5)

A multiple round barrow cluster together with a square enclosure, located to the West of the twin Milston Down Long Barrows.

Unfortunately for visitors they are directly behind a series of MOD ranges and closer inspection is usually prohibited.
