Notes

A Bronze Age bowl barrow, listed by Grinsell as Avebury 35, located on Avebury Down. Excavation by Merewether in 1849 found a crouched inhumation, possibly representing the primary interment, plus a coarse pottery vessel containing the cremated remains of a child. Still extant as an earthwork.
