  • (Early Neolithic to Late Bronze Age - 4000 BC to 701 BC)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

A barrow described as being 'on Hollington Hill' was excavated by Llewelwyn Jewitt and J Lucas. (1-3) The excavation probably took place before November 11 1867. There are no details of the excavation or of any finds, although there is believed to be a flint scraper in the Lucas collection 'from a barrow on Hollington Hill'. The drawing looks like a flint flake rather than a scraper. The barrow itself may be lost or destroyed; alternatively it could be one of two surviving barrows in the area [SMR 14310 and SMR 14303].
