Severn-notswold??
Jan 03, 2022, 11:43
I've been having serious doubts about the assessment of this long cairn/chambered tomb/court cairn/multi phase dolmen..

If it's a classic long cairn, where is the stone, why leave the footprint but take everything else? The photo from the early 90s sites clearly a kerb? or ring anyway, which the plan from the 50s says is internal, I'm not convinced.

I've been searching but not found any early records even mentioning it. No farmers hauling away 50 cart loads etc. Stone old undated wall footings remain about 100m away however.
