Bartlow Hills

The Bartlow Hills barrow cemetery comprises two rows of burial mounds running approximately north south. Four barrows in the eastern row survive as large conical mounds up to 12 metres high and 46 metres in diameter, whilst in the western row another two have been substantially reduced by past agricultural activity. The barrows were excavated in 1832-1840 revealing walled graves in the centre of each mound and an array of wealthy grave goods, including furniture and the remains of wooden chests containing Roman drinking vessels and tableware.

The Group visited the site in August 2013.
