MONUMENT NO. 221665

DESCRIPTION + /

Possible long barrow excavated in 1849 by Merewether, who recovered animal bones and a fragment of an "ampulla of Roman form. It is listed by Grinsell as Winterbourne Monkton 8, although Grinsell was unsure whether the monument was a long barrow. Ordnance Survey field investigation in 1975 noted an oval mound 30 metres long and 14 metres wide, standing up to 1.2 metres high, with sarsens at the western end. No side ditches are visible. Although the mound is clearly of artificial construction, its identification as a long barrow is by no means certain.
