|2500bc-14/1300bc||A round barrow with a primary (?) four walled cist of sarsen slabs covered by a capstone. This contained an upright early type collared urn filled with the cremated remains of a probable female. The space between the urn and the cist walls was filled with chalk and wood ashes. The cist was covered by an inner cairn of sarsens and flints, mixed with chalk and wood ashes.
There was the crouched inhumation of a male 0.9m above this in the chalk rubble casing of the mound, on its right side, facing west, but with no grave goods.
