The Five Knolls

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


When the Northern most barrow was excavated in 1928 a crouched female skeleton with a late Neolithic knife at her shoulder was found. In Saxon times about 30 bodies were buried here, hands behind their backs, and people hung on the gallows were also buried here later. pure joy Posted by pure joy
