Notes

Two Bronze Age bowl barrows, listed by Grinsell as Avebury 35a and b. The former was excavated by Merewether in 1849. Within the body of the mound he found two sarsen cists containing some burnt bones. The mound also produced a quantity of iron nails and Roman pottery, while just below the turf were 84 Roman coins, some being of Constantine and Constans (AD 306-350). The second barrow appears to have been ploughed out during the 19th century. A very slight possible mound, which may represent one of the barrows, was recorded during a recent RCHME aerial survey project.
