Shrewsbury Tumulus

Round Barrow(s)


The Shrewsbury Tumulus, the sole survivor of 6 siblings... Nestles comfortably between roads and houses. Enclosed by a wiry metal fence, it nevertheless retains a certain power over it's surroundings, subtly deforming the tarmac.

The closeness of the modern trappings gives this mound an especially eternal quality.

It seems all the ancient sites In this city have been moved, contained or otherwise diminished - an acknowledgement of their potency perhaps...

Despite being opened in the past, what it ever contained (or still may contain) no one knows...
