Summary[edit]

Description
English: Bush Barrow "In the 1720s William Stukeley had called it “the bush barrow” after trees planted on the top (though the “county people” knew it as “the green barrow”)" http://www.britarch.ac.uk/ba/ba104/feat1.shtml .

"This very large bowl barrow in the Normanton Down barrow group, just south of Stonehenge, measures over 40m in diameter and stands today 3m high. It was excavated in 1808 by William Cunnington and Sir Richard Colt Hoare. The primary burial was of a tall, stout, adult man, buried lying on his back. The grave goods placed with him show that this was a princely burial from about 1900 -1700 B.C. It is Britain's richest and most important Bronze Age burial" http://www.wiltshireheritage.org.uk/galleries/index.php?Action=3&obID=89&prevID=9 .

In the foreground is a round barrow. Together they form part of the Normanton Down Barrows. The first link gives much detail about the excavation of Bush Barrow and the site as a whole.
