Fieldwork 2016 – the sites

The second fieldwork season of the Round Mounds Project is already in full swing! Below is a list of sites that will be investigated this year.

One or two more sites may yet be added to this list… See here to read about the criteria we used to select our study sites. We’re looking for mounds situated in landscapes with known prehistoric activity (especially Neolithic monuments!), mounds that are in low-lying and ‘watery’ topographic settings, and mounds that are relatively large (i.e. larger than your average barrow).

The sites

  • “Castle 2”, Hamstead Marshall, W. Berkshire
  • Sherrington, Wiltshire
  • Castle Tump, Worcestershire
  • Clare, Suffolk
  • Tonbridge, Kent
  • Catterick, N. Yorkshire
  • Pilsbury, Derbyshire
  • Tickhill, S. Yorkshire
  • “Montem Mound”, Slough, Berkshire
