WILSFORD 77A (GRINSELL)

DESCRIPTION + /

A Bronze Age pond barrow survives as earthworks and forms part of the Lake Down round barrow cemetery (Monument Number 218330). It is probably one of the round barrows excavated by Mr Edward Duke of Lake House in the early 19th century (Number 12, 13 or 14). The round barrow was listed as Wilsford 77a by Grinsell and was surveyed at a scale of 1:1000 in May 2009 as part of English Heritage's Stonehenge WHS Landscape Project. It has an overall diameter of 16.3m and is the smallest pond barrow in the group. The round barrow comprises a shallow and fragmentary bank which encircles a depression which has a maximum depth of 0.4m and a diameter of circa 6.6m. The depression has an irregular shallow profile with almost straight sides and a flat base. North of the depression the shallow bank appears to be overlain by that around Wilsford 77 (Monument Number 1119544).
