MONUMENT NO. 458711

DESCRIPTION + /

A Bronze Age bowl barrow, originally circa 30.5 metres in diameter and 2.1 metres high, located near the northern extremity of the Double Dykes (SZ 19 SE 84). It was completely excavated in 1911-12 by Bushe-Fox, who found a cremation within a collared urn, plus two cones of sheet gold, three amber beads, a halberd pendant of bronze and amber, and some worked flints. The cremation was probably of a female aged circa 20 years. Ordnance Survey field investigation in 1969 showed the barrow to survive as a mound 23.5 metres in diameter and 2 metres high.
