LOOSE HOWE

DESCRIPTION + /

Loose Howe Bronze Age round barrow above the head of Rosedale. With a diameter of 16m and a height of 0.7m, this barrow was excavated by Elgee in 1937 to reveal stone casing with a primary burial in a canoe-shaped coffin, with bone fragments and an Early Bronze Age rivetted dagger. Further finds and cremations were discovered. The barrow is visible as an earthwork on air photographs and was mapped as part of the North York Moors NMP. The feature is extant on the latest 2009 vertical photography. Scheduled.
