Monument record MYO3533 - Round Barrow Kexby

Summary

Aerial photographs record a round barrow cemetery as cropmarks to the south of Londesborough Lodge in Kexby parish, centred on SE 6923 5220. The group comprises two large concentric ring-ditches (one monument only partly showing), approximately 50m across, and three smaller single ring-ditches (one only partly revealed). The group can probably be dated to the Early Bronze Age period. Fragmentary linear features in the adjacent area may represent parts of mortuary enclosures associated with or predating the funerary monuments.
