DURRINGTON 50 (GODDARD)

DESCRIPTION + /

A Bronze Age bowl barrow survives as earthworks and forms part of the cemetery group recorded as Monument Number 219428. The round barrow measures 34.6m in overall diameter and comprises a roughly circular mound, 1.6m high and of at least two phases, which is almost surrounded by a shallow ditch. The barrow was excavated in the early 19th century by Sir Richard Colt Hoare, who noted that it had been opened before but located several inhumations, potsherds, a perforated antler pick (now in Devizes Museum) and a large deep cist (Barrow 104: 1812). It was listed as Durrington 50 by Goddard (1913) and as a bowl barrow by Grinsell (1957). The site was mapped at a scale of 1:10,000 from aerial photographs as part of the RCHME: Salisbury Plain Training Area NMP project and the mapping revised at a scale of 1:2500 for the English Heritage Stonehenge WHS Mapping Project. The round barrow was also surveyed at 1:1000 in 2011 as part of English Heritage's Stonehenge WHS Landscape Project.
