MONUMENT NO. 859112

DESCRIPTION + /

Bronze Age bowl barrow, listed by Grinsell as Winterbourne Stoke 46, and part of the barrow group recorded as SU 14 SW 19. Excavations in the early 19th century by Cunnington located a probable primary interment with a bronze dagger, a whetstone, bone tweezers and other bone objects. Excavations by Vatcher in 1961 showed the surrounding ditch to have an overall diameter of 23 metres. The limits of the mound could not be determined, but a berm was present. No central burial was identified, but four secondary cremations were recovered. A small collared urn and a concentration of stake holes were recorded outside the barrow ditch. Late Bronze Age sherds were recovered from the surface of the mound. There are no surface traces of the barrow.
