Stonehenge


Stonehenge

  • Barrows are ancient burial chambers. There are two main types of barrows: long barrows, built in the Neolithic Period (4000 BCE - 2500BCE) and round barrows, built in the Bronze Age.


Stonehenge

The first stage of construction at Stonehenge, when it was just the Bank and Ditch , goes back to the time of the long barrows. However, Stonehenge IV, the "version" that is most famous today, was built at a time when the round barrows were on the decline.


Stonehenge

  • In Stonehenge's Vicinity

  • Long Barrows: Long Barrows can be found in Wessex and Sussex, and also in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire.


Stonehenge

  • Excavation shows that the person was kept above ground for a time, perhaps on top of a platform, until others died, and the bodies could be put in the barrow and the barrow covered over with earth.

The Entrance to West Kennet Long Barrow


Stonehenge

  • They were used for the burial of important people.


Stonehenge

  • Round Barrows: Round barrows, built at the time of Stonehenge IV, also surround the area of Stonehenge. In fact, within the Henge's Bank and Ditch are two round barrows.


Stonehenge

  • There are four types of barrows: bowl, bell, pond, and disc.

  • As with the long barrows, round ones only housed important People.


Stonehenge

  • Buried in these barrows often had their possessions about them: daggers, bronze maces, stone battle-axes, in the graves of the men, and in the graves of women, bead necklaces and other ornaments.


Stonehenge

  • Originally bodies were buried in a crouched position, but later bodies were cremated


Stonehenge

  • Stonehenge was probably built by the Swiss, Germans, and Austrians.

  • It has been dated back to 2800 BC and the king’s grave 2300 hundred so… maybe not?
