Article about the two amateur archaeologists, Mr Mutch and Mr Durbidge, whose discoveries at Pakefield in Suffolk led to the known date of arrival of early humans in northern Europe being pushed back by 200,000 years (to 700,000 years ago). Bravo!

Icklingham (Round Barrow(s)) — Fieldnotes

Visited 31.10.14

Directions:
South of Icklingham (on the A1101) near a minor road.


I think I saw what is left of this barrow as a very ploughed down 'bump' - alternatively what I saw was natural and the barrow has been completely ploughed out?

Either way E.H. has nothing to report.

Aldringham Green (Round Barrow(s)) — Fieldnotes

Visited 27.10.14

Directions:
In the village of Aldringham, on the eastern side of the B1122.

The O/S map shows a public footpath running south-east from the B1122 past the barrows.
In reality it doesn't exist. There is no access through the hedge or past the farm workings.

From the side of the road I could make out one of the barrows as a rough, scrub covered mound.

E.H. state:
Two bowl barrows situated near the edge of a south-west facing slope overlooking the Hundred River. The larger of the two is visible as an earthen mound c.21m in diameter and stands to a height of 1.2m. The second barrow, which lies 7.5m to the south-east of the first, is c.14m in diameter and stands to a maximum height of 0.6m. A slight hollow in the centre marks the site of an old excavation.

Tinker's Walk (Round Barrow(s)) — Fieldnotes

Visited 27.10.14

Directions:
Either side of the B1387, the approach road to the village of Walberswick.

For a dead-end road it was surprisingly busy.
However, there is room for a couple of cars to park at the entrance to a bridleway.

I couldn't see anything of the barrow to the north of the road as it is very overgrown woodland and access would be very difficult.

However, the barrow on the southern side of the road (near a rather smelly pig farm) could be seen as a rough grass covered mound.

Not one to go out of your way for.

Church Common (Round Barrow(s)) — Fieldnotes

Visited 27.10.14

Directions:
North of the village of Snape, on the southern side of the A1094.

Parking is difficult (a recurring theme so far from my travels in this part of the world) but Karen briefly pulled over so I could have a quick look over the hedge for the barrows.

All I could see was one small area of rough grass.
Was this the remains of one of the barrows?
Or have they now been ploughed out?

Unfortunately E.H. have nothing to report on the matter.
