Notes

A Bronze Age bowl, listed by Grinsell as Wilsford 74. Food Vessel sherds, an axe, bone, a scraper and an antler fragment were reportedly found in circa 1898. The barrow is extant as an earthwork mound 1 metre high and 20 metres in diameter. The ditch is visible as an earthwork but has been destroyed on the eastern side. It has been suggested that a berm is visible as a cropmark on aerial photographs, thereby making it a bell barrow. However the marks around the barrow on all the available aerial photographs appear to be agricultural marks caused by the tractor having to go around the mound of the barrow.
