A tomb with a view: Recent work on Cotswold long barrows

 Professor Timothy Darvill, Bournemouth

University


Scattered across the Cotswold Hills are more than a hundred great

stone long barrows dating to the period 3800 to 3300 BC. They were

built by early farming groups and served to contain the remains of

their dead and act as territorial markers. In this lecture, we will explore

how these sites have been investigated over the last two centuries,

what we know about their origins and use, and what excavations at a

recently discovered example near Cirencester have started to tell us

about the site itself and the location and relationships of long barrows

across the region.
