Round barrow, Hoe Hills, Dowsby

Round barrow, Hoe Hills, Dowsby


PRN 36431
As part of the Fenland Management Project, evaluation work and excavation was carried out on this round barrow. The barrow ditch measured 27m in diameter, and two phases were evident. A truncated internal gravel bank/revetment had no surviving relationships to associate it to a particular phase of ditch construction, although it predated the main phase of mound construction. A truncated upright collared urn containing a cremation was found in the centre of the mound. Burnt charcoal and possible pyre/hearth material and urn sherds rested on the same horizon. Traces of a secondary cremation were also found close to the gravel bank/revetment in the south-east quadrant. Bone fragments were dispersed amongst vessel sherds. Adjacent to these an intact perforated incense cup was found in a shallow depression {1}, probably placed as an accessory vessel.{2}
