Monument Number 1086542

Hob Uid: 1086542
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Luccombe
Grid Ref : SS9085042780
Summary : Three small mounds recorded on Dunkery Hill, thought to be cairns and forming part of a wider round cairn cemetery.
More information : For details see county SMR. (1)

The Somerset SMR records three small mounds on Dunkery Hill near Joaney How, at SS 9085 4278, 9086 4278 and 9087 4277. They are all 3m-3.5m in diameter and 0.2-0.3m high. The area was investigated as part of the RCHME Exmoor project, and many such mounds were located on Dunkery Hill (eg SS 94 SW 85). They are unlikely to be prehistoric burial cairns and are more likely to be associated with recent activity on the hill (2).

Three small mounds, believed to be cairns. Possibly constructed as secondary cairns and forming part of a round cairn cemetery centred on Robin How and Joaney How. Scheduled. (3)
