Round Barrows, Wiltshire, 1985.

Round Barrows, Wiltshire, 1985. These four Bronze Age burial mounds date from roughly 2000 BC. They are located a mile south of Stonehenge, and are nearly aligned with it. They belongs to a larger group called the Normanton Down Barrows. The largest mound in the foreground, known as a bell barrow, is surrounded by a circular ditch from which it was partially excavated. The view looks toward the south, away from Stonehenge.
