AMESBURY 56 (GODDARD)

DESCRIPTION + /

A Bronze Age bowl barrow, or possibly a bell barrow. It was listed by Goddard and Grinsell as Amesbury 56, located within the western end of the Stonehenge Cursus (Monument Number 219546) and forming part of the Cursus barrow cemetery (Monument Number 219681). The round barrow was excavated by Colt Hoare in the early 19th century (Barrow 43). He found a primary inhumation accompanied by a bronze dagger and a polished pebble. In addition there were two secondary burials, one of a child, and the other an adult with a 'drinking cup' (Beaker). The mound survives 1.5m high and about 25m in diameter.
