A Bronze Age round barrow is visible as an earthwork on air photographs. The feature is extant on the latest Google.Earth.com 12-SEP-2005 photography (accessed on 08-JUL-2009). At Rolley Low a Bronze Age barrow was opened in 1844. It contained a primary contracted burial in a cist accompanied by two flint arrowheads and a boar's tusk with secondary cist burials which also contained skeletons and an inverted urn over calcined bones. Finds of a Roman coin and human bones suggested a Roman burial near the surface of the barrow.
