WILSFORD 78 (GODDARD)

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 78 by Goddard and subsequently by Grinsell. It was surveyed at a scale of 1:1000 in May 2009 as part of English Heritage's Stonehenge WHS Landscape Project. The barrow lies roughly central to the group. It has an overall diameter of 23m and comprises a circular depression, circa 1.3m deep, encircled by a bank 0.2m high and up to 2m wide. An intrusion, 0.2m deep and just south of its centre, measures 5.8m long by circa 1.1m wide; it is aligned north-east to south-west, giving the barrow an irregular profile. The flat floor of the depression measures circa 9.5m in diameter. A breach, circa 3.9m wide, is visible in the bank to the north-east.
