Barrow - embanked barrow

You are here: Home  > Barrow - embanked barrow
A circular or oval raised area, generally less than 20m in diameter, enclosed by a continuous broad/large bank with a level or a concave interior. Generally there is no external fosse and no entrance. The proportion of the bank size (large) in relation to the internal diameter (small) is important in identifying this site type. These are part of the Bronze/Iron Age burial tradition (c. 2400 BC - AD 400).
