I wonder if Ike's still about. I'd love to know how he knows about this site and its name.. I can't see the name on the maps. But anyway. Once there must have been a barrow round here and maybe this is it.
In a Tumulus at Over, in this parish [Almondsbury], opened in the year 1650, was found a human skeleton, in a sitting posture, which report affirms to have exceeded the common stature by three feet. No well-authenticated account of the discoveries made on the opening of this sepulchre, appears to have been written.
Doesn't seem unreasonable that a 8ft+ man would have been a king, fair enough.
