Hob Uid: 236330
Location :
Hampshire

Grid Ref : SU5075044420
Summary : Earthwork remains of a bell barrow and two disc barrows.
More information : ('A' - SU 50794442: 'B'SU 50734442)
Three Barrows (Tumuli) (OE). (1)

The "Three Barrows" group comprises a bell-barrow (A), a
twin-barrow (B), and two disc-barrows (C & D).
SU 5069442 & SU 5063442 (3). All but the western disc-barrow were
excavated by O.G.S. Crawford in 1920.

The bell barrow had a MBA primary cremation and the
disc-barrow, C, a small vessel of All Cannings Cross or Worthy
Down type, suggesting an EIA date. Grinsell suggests C & D may
be low platform barrows, some of which are EIA.

Finds from the bell barrow included fragments of beakers,
seven scrapers, an oval blade and an axe. (2-4)

A. A bowl shaped mound 30.0 m.in average diameter and 1.6 m. in
height. No trace of ditch.

B. Confluent twin barrows now appearing as an undivided oval
mound 45.0 m. E-W and 34o m. N-S and 2.2m in height. No trace
of ditch.

Nothing remains of barrows C and D but both are visible as
ring-ditches on A.P.'s.
