WHITELOW HILL

DESCRIPTION + /

The remains of a cairn circa 14 metres in diameter, and circa 0.6 metres, with a substantially built retaining wall, were discovered on Whitelow Hillock in 1960. Excavation between 1960 and 1962 yielded a primary burial, which seems to have been a cremation deposited in a pit, and seven secondary cremations, four in urns, all dating from early to middle Bronze Age. Other finds included a bronze awl, clay stud or pulley-button, a flint flake, blades of a broken knife and a leaf-shaped arrowhead. Most of the finds are in Bury Museum.
