This is a religious site (C. 2000BC) from the late Neolithic period, built in two phases.
Firstly a henge with a ditch and a stone circle was built (still visible behind the mound). Following this a stone chamber was added where the remains of the dead were buried.
The chamber was accessed along a causeway which was beneath the mound (?).
