It is thought the barrow is one excavated by Thomas Bateman in 1851. He found it to contain a central limestone cist containing a pottery urn
inverted over the remains of a cremation and a burnt bone pin.
He discovered a second cist containing the crouched skeletons of two adults and two children accompanied by a food vessel and a number of flint implements.
An adult crouched burial was found close to this second cist and a further two burials of children by the central cist
