Top Low and Net Low (Round Barrow(s)) — Miscellaneous

This elongated barrow has nearly five pages devoted to it in Bateman's "Ten years diggings" book which goes into detail about the various cists and bone remains found. In cist 4 on the plan he found 'the skeleton of a young hog inside a roughly built cist' and he later notes 'we are inclined to assign the post of honour to the cist containing the hog, which was placed nearest the centre'.
