Amesbury 114 (RCHME)

Hob Uid: 1119431
Location :
Wiltshire
Amesbury
Grid Ref : SU1153942770
Summary : A small circular feature, defined by a single ditch, is visible as a cropmark immediately adjacent to the round barrow Amesbury 49 (Monument Number 942659). It also appears as a very slight mound on aerial photograhs taken in 1943. It is about 6 metres in diameter, and appears to have a central pit. The feature could possibly represent a Bronze Age round barrow as part of the Cursus barrow cemetery (Monument Number 219681). Alternatively, it may represent a more recent feature associated with 20th century agricultural or military activity. The site was listed as Amesbury 114 by the RCHME. The area was surveyed by English Heritage in April 2009 as part of the Stonehenge WHS Landscape Project but no earthworks relating to the monument were recorded.

A small circular feature, defined by a single ditch, is visible as a cropmark on aerial photographs, and as a very slight mound on aerial photograhs taken in 1943. The feature may represent a Bronze Age round barrow. Alternatively, it may be associated with twentieth century military activity. It has been mapped by both RCHME's Salisbury Plain Training Area NMP and EH's Stonehenge WHS Mapping Project. (3-4)

The area was surveyed by English Heritage in April 2009 as part of the Stonehenge WHS Landscape Project but no earthworks relating to the monument referred to above (1-4) were recorded. The cropmark may be the result of 20th century agriculture, perhaps a fertilizer dump or site of an animal feed trough. (5-6)
