Description from keys to the past

"Large irregular mound (55m by 90m) which survives, in places, up to 3m high. The remains of a stone-lined grave were found just to the south of the top of the mound. It contained the remains of a man, 1.7m in height. Earlier, in the 19th century, a pottery vessel had been found in the mound. These remains probably belong to the Bronze Age. "
