Notes

Two bowl barrows which lie 350 metres apart on Rodmead Hill 560 metres and 670 metres east of Rodmead Farm. The barrows, which are aligned north-south, each include a mound 14 metres in diameter and approximately 0.8 metres high. Each mound is surrounded by a ditch from which material for its construction was quarried. These have become infilled but will survive as buried features 2 metres wide. The northern barrow, which lies on a north facing slope, shows signs of disturbance to the centre of the mound which may be the result of partial excavation carried out by Sir Richard Colt Hoare in the early 19th century. The southern barrow, which lies on level ground at the head of a narrow coombe, was also probably excavated by Colt Hoare. Scheduled.
