Notes

The foundations of a circular building, purpose unknown contiguous with Mutlow Hill barrow (see TL 55 SW 2), measuring 35ft in diameter with walls 3ft thick constructed of large chalk bricks was excavated and removed by Neville in 1852. Other finds, chiefly Roman included a fragment of embossed Samian ware, bronze implements including three fibulae, two armlets, a buckle etc., a green glass bead, fragments of two stone axes, a skeleton with one ring of bronze, a coin hoard consisting of 78 Roman coins of Vespasian to Valentinian AD 69-375 - a late 4th century hoard, and an inscribed Iron Age bronze coin of Tasciovanus now in the British Museum. The inhumation may suggest the building was a mausoleum.
