Notes

Beacon Hill bowl barrow excavated in 1935 and found to contain 5 Bronze Age cinerary urns. Neolithic flints and possible Roman or saxon sherds were also found. A late 6th or 7th century cinerary urn was found among the barrows in 1935, presumably a secondary inhumation. Used as a beacon in the Post-Mediaeval period.
