DURRINGTON 3 (GODDARD)

DESCRIPTION + /

The site of a Bronze Age bowl barrow destroyed in the later-20th century by military construction work. It is one of the group recorded as Monument Number 219477. The round barrow was excavated by Cunnington and for Sir Richard Colt Hoare in the early 19th century (Barrow 64: 1812), although no details are known. The round barrow was listed as Durrington 3 by Goddard (1913) and as a bowl barrow by Grinsell (1957). Rescue excavation in 1988 by Wessex Archaeology showed the barrow to be badly plough-damaged. No grave pit was found although Roman period potsherds were found in the secondary fill of the surrounding ditch, and a Roman coin was found in the plough-soil within the area of the barrow mound. The round barrow is visible as an earthwork on historic aerial photographs and was mapped by both RCHME's Salisbury Plain Training Area NMP and EH's Stonehenge WHS Mapping Project. Its location was examined in May 2011 as part of English Heritage's Stonehenge WHS Landscape Project - Level 1 survey. There is no trace of the round barrow on the surface.
