Lecture

Description

The rich collection of Neolithic long barrows on the Cotswolds and in surrounding areas have been subject to study and excavation for more than three centuries, but few have been examined in modern times. This lecture looks at the history of study and widely held understandings of this fascinating group of monuments in the light of on-going excavations at the Sisters Long Barrow near Cirencester.
