Monument Number 1086535

Hob Uid: 1086535
Location :
Somerset West and Taunton
Grid Ref : SS9092042800
Summary : A small mound 5 metres in diameter, 0.4 metres high, lying 103 metres east of Joaney How on Dunkery Hill, discovered in 1978. Possibly constructed as later and secondary cairns and forming part of a round cairn cemetery.
More information : For details see Somerset SMR. (1)

The SMR for Somerset records a small mound, 5m in diameter, 0.4m high at SS 9092 4280. The area was investigated as part of the RCHME Exmoor project. Many such mounds are scattered over Dunkery Hill (eg SS 94 SW 85), and this mound is unlikely to be a prehistoric burial cairn. It is more likely to be associated with more recent activity on the hill (2).

Possibly constructed as a secondary cairn. Forms part of prehistoric round cairn cemetery centred on Robin How and Joaney How. Scheduled. (3)
