WINTERBOURNE STOKE 28 (GODDARD)

DESCRIPTION + /

A Bronze Age bowl barrow survives as slight but damaged earthworks. It had been assumed completely destroyed during the First World War when a large aircraft hangar was erected over the site (Monument Number 1362705). Slight earthworks of the ditch, south of the mound, were surveyed at a scale of 1:1,000 by English Heritage as part of the Stonehenge WHS Landscape project in 2010. The round barrow was listed by Goddard and as a bowl barrow by Grinsell (both as Winterbourne Stoke 28). It was excavated in the early 19th century by Hoare (Barrow 42). Finds included a primary cremation with a handled bronze awl and a collared urn (previously described as an enlarged food vessel). Hoare described the barrow as being 66 feet wide and 6 feet high. Part of a human skull, some potsherds and rock fragments were found in 1870-71 by W H Cunnington. An inspection in 1969 recorded no visible remains, which were probably obscured while the area used by Wiltshire County Council as a dump for road-making material.
