Amesbury Bowl Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


A little to the northwest there is a better preserved bowl barrow, Amesbury 40 (SU 13027 42384). It's situated on a crest just to the south of the Avenue, about midway between New King Barrows and Stonehenge.

Colt Hoare excavated in the 19th century and found "a primary inhumation, a 'drinking cup' and a bone pin".
