Coldrum Long Barrow

The Coldrum Long Barrow is also known as the Coldrum Stones and the Adscombe Stones. It is a chambered long barrow that was probably constructed in the fourth millennium BCE, during Britain’s Early Neolithic period.

The barrow is built out of earth and around fifty local sarsen-stone megaliths, and originally consisted of a sub-rectangular earthen tumulus enclosed by kerb-stones.

Within the eastern end of the tumulus was a stone chamber, into which human remains were deposited on at least two separate occasions during the Early Neolithic.
