MONUMENT NO. 1237883

DESCRIPTION + /

A circular enclosure circa 50 metres in diameter is visible as a cropmark on air photographs. The site, located a short distance southwest of the possible long barrow/mortuary enclosure TL 81 NW 32, has been interpreted as a possible henge. Trial trenching in 1996 produced quantities of burnt flint and struck flint which appeared to suggest a possible Neolithic or Bronze Age date. An interim report has stated that "Rivenhall has been discovered to be Neolithic". An arc of ditch circa 80 metres in length has been noted as a cropmark south of, and roughly concentric to, the enclosure, and may be related to it. [this henge was originally recorded as part of TL 81 NW 32. See that record for additional sources and information]
