The round barrow cemetery at Normanton dates from around 2600 to 1600BC and it is one of the most impressive groups of burial mounds in the Stonehenge landscape. This barrow cemetery lies to the south of Stonehenge. There is a clear line of sight from these barrows to Stonehenge, about a kilometre or just over half a mile away.
