DURRINGTON 51 (GODDARD)

DESCRIPTION + /

A Bronze Age bowl barrow survives as earthworks and forms part of the cemetery group recorded as Monument Number 219428. It comprises a roughly circular mound with a step or ledge around the eastern half that could suggest two phases of construction. The mound is circa 0.9m high; the summit measures 6m and the base 18m in diameter. The barrow was excavated in the early 19th century by Sir Richard Colt Hoare, who located a primary cremation in a circular cist (Barrow 100:1812). It was listed as Durrington 51 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 December 2011 as part of English Heritage's Stonehenge WHS Landscape Project.
