WINDMILL TUMP

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  WINDMILL TUMP LONG BARROW, RODMARTON LONG BARROW
DESCRIPTION + /

Windmill Tump, also known as Rodmarton long barrow, is an early Neolithic chambered long barrow situated on a gentle west-facing slope immediately below the crest of a ridge of arable land. It was partially excavated in 1863 and 1939, and again in 1987 following the fall of two trees. Neolithic inhumations and arrowheads, as well as Roman coins have been recovered from the barrow. This area was surveyed as part of The Cotswold Hills NMP project. It was not possible to map the long barrow from aerial photographs as in all available photographs it is covered by trees.
