Bronze Age bowl barrow, listed by Grinsell as Avebury 64a. Excavated by Merewether in 1849, who described the mound as being set within a circle of stones. Within the barrow he found quantities of pottery, charcoal and animal bones. The mound is now somewhat denuded, and while several stones remain, only two are upright.
