Upton Great Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


Hoare wrote in 'Ancient Wiltshire' that William Cunnington had found a cremation in this barrow, accompanied by "forty-eight beads, sixteen of which were of green and blue opaque glass, of a long shape, and notched between so as to resemble a string of beads; five were of canal coal or jet; and the remaining twenty seven were of red amber; the whole forming a most beautiful necklace, and such as a British female would not in these modern days of good taste and elegance disdain to wear."
