DESCRIPTION + /

A Bronze Age bowl barrow, forming part of the Aston Valley Barrow Cemetery, situated south of Codford Down. The barrow, designated as Codford St Peter 6 by Grinsell (1957), is located 130 metres east of the barrow cemetery and survives as an earthwork 30 metres in diameter and 1 metre high. Excavations in 1801 by William Cunnington located a primary cremation and a secondary inhumation which was extended, orientated southwest-northeast and accompanied by a firwood bucket bound in bronze and a possible sword or spearhead. The grave goods indicate an early Saxon date.
