Notes

A Neolithic long barrow situated on the crest of a spur sloping southwest, on the southern side of Gussage Hill, circa 500 metres south of the Dorset Cursus (Linear 41) and a similar distance southwest of long barrow ST 91 SE 11. Listed by RCHME as Gussage St Michael 13 and by Grinsell as Gussage St Michael V. RCHME described it as a mound "much reduced by ploughing", measuring about 200 feet in length, 85 feet across and up to 3 feet high, with no side ditches visible on the ground. The mound is aligned east-southeast by west-northwest. There is no record of any excavation.
