Notes

Four Bronze Age round barrows, plus two further ring ditches, probably also the remains of Bronze Age round barrows, observed as cropmarks. Grinsell's Bishops Cannings 11-14, comprise a bell barrow, a pond barrow, and a pair of disc barrows, one of which was excavated in the early 19th century by Cunnington and contained a primary cremation with urn a piece of slate, plus bone and amber beads. A bone toggle and stone bracer in Devizes Museum may represent some of these objects. The four barrows are still extant as earthworks, though some damage is evident. All are visible on aerial photographs.
