AMESBURY 112 (RCHME)

DESCRIPTION + /

A probable Bronze Age round barrow survives as earthworks within Fargo Plantation and forms part of the Cursus Barrow Group (Monument Number 219681). It measures an overall diameter of 29.5m and comprises a slight outer bank and ring ditch encircling an area with some mounding visible internally, along the southern side. The site was initially recorded by the RCHME as Amesbury 112 and has been interpreted as a disc barrow, although the mounding indicates that it may have had some other form originally. The area was ploughed in the early 19th century and subsequently planted with trees: both processes have probably caused damage to the monument. The earthworks were observed by English Heritage in November 2010 during a rapid field investigation of Fargo South as part of the Stonehenge WHS Landscape Project.
