Barrow cemetery 580m ESE of Newbold Manor Farm.
Round barrows are funerary monuments dating from the Late Neolithic period to the Late Bronze Age, with most examples belonging to the period 2400-1500 BC. They were constructed as earthen or rubble mounds, sometimes ditched, which covered single or multiple burials. They occur either in isolation or grouped as cemeteries and often acted as a focus for burials in later periods. Often superficially similar, although differing widely in size, they exhibit regional variations in form and a diversity of burial practices. Where large scale investigation has been undertaken around them, contemporary or later "flat" burials between the barrow mounds have often been revealed. In some cases, they are clustered around other important contemporary monuments such as henges. They provide important information on the diversity of beliefs and social organisations amongst early prehistoric communities.The barrow cemetery 580m ESE of Newbold Manor Farm survives as buried archaeological remains in an area of considerable prehistoric activity. Although traces of earthworks appear to have been denuded through ploughing, buried archaeological features, artefacts and archaeological and environmental deposits will survive which will provide important information relating both to the monument and the wider ritual landscape in which it was constructed.
This record was the subject of a minor enhancement on 11 June 2015. This record has been generated from an "old county number" (OCN) scheduling record. These are monuments that were not reviewed under the Monuments Protection Programme and are some of our oldest designation records. The monument includes the buried remains of a barrow cemetery situated on the river terraces to the west of the river Trent. At least five ring ditches have been identified as cropmarks from aerial photography defined as circular single ditched enclosures ranging approximately from 10m to 22m in diameter. The monument lies just over 2km NNE of an area named the Catholme Ceremonial Complex which appears to have been a focus for the development of a late Neolithic and early Bronze Age ceremonial and ritual landscape which extended along the river valleys of the Trent and Tame. A large concentration of ring ditches have been identified in the area, the majority of which are thought to represent Bronze Age barrows, however further investigation has revealed complexity and diversity of the monuments.
The contents of this record have been generated from a legacy data system.
This monument is scheduled under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979 as amended as it appears to the Secretary of State to be of national importance. This entry is a copy, the original is held by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
