Thomas Bateman made the steep climb up Narrowdale Hill in 1846.
Heading straight for the centre of the barrow he soon found the primary burial, a cremation contained within a rock cut grave along with an urn and flint. The capstone that covered the grave had a later cremation, also in an urn, placed on top.
A small cist of limestone slabs, holding a still later cremation, was also unearthed close to the barrows surface in the SE. This burial too contained worked pieces of flint and antler.
