WILSFORD 79 (GODDARD)

DESCRIPTION + /

A Bronze Age bowl 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. The round barrow was listed as Wilsford 79 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. It comprises a mound, 0.7m high, with very slight indications of a surrounding bank. The top of the mound is off centre and slopes to the east: it measures a maximum of 13.3m in diameter and the base of the mound is 19m. A shallow scarp, 0.15m high and facing away from the mound, is situated to its south-west and a smaller mound, just 0.1m high and located to its north-east, combine to suggest an outer bank, presumably damaged by ploughing.
