MONUMENT NO. 221603

DESCRIPTION + /

Bronze Age barrow cemetery comprising Winterbourne Monkton numbers 13-17. Beaker and Middle Bronze Age sherds have been recovered from some of the barrows, though only one mound, WM 16, has any record of excavation. Limited trenching in 1921 yielded a secondary cremation in a large inverted pottery vessel. Four of the mounds survive as earthworks, while the fifth, WM 17, was last recorded as a soilmark of a ring ditch only.
