The Eddie Price lecture
A tomb with a view: Recent work on Cotswold long barrows
Professor Timothy Darvill, Bournemouth
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.
