Notes

Earthwork remains of a Bronze Age ditched bowl barrow. It was opened in the early 1900's with a large quantity of flints being removed, and then opened by Crawford in 1908, and was found to contain a cremation, bone implements, a bone needle & bronze razor. Some of the finds are held in Newbury museum. The site was visible as an earthwork and mapped from aerial photographs dated 1958.
