What will I see?
This linear alignment of Bronze Age barrows can be viewed by the public. The barrows proved to be both unusually rich in artefacts and to contain very different internal structures when excavated by the Rev Kirwan of Gittisham. Hutchinson was critical of Kirwan’s methods and his almost non-existing recording.
