Bronze Age Barrow Cemetery Discovered Near Stonehenge

A giant 3,500 to 4,000-year-old round barrow cemetery has been discovered in Wiltshire in England, and so far, 10 Bronze Age burials have been excavated as well as three piles of buried cremation ash.

Wiltshire is well known due to the incredible Stonehenge Neolithic landscape, which is around 8 miles north of the newly excavated site in suburban town of Harnham, near Salisbury.

The area has been earmarked for the building of 640 new homes and before the builders went in, archaeologists from Cotswold Archaeology had the chance to excavate.
