|This is an interesting pair of barrows that stand close to the busy A155 road just outside the village of Revesby and close to the earthworks of an abandoned abbey. Whilst they could date from the Bronze Age, it is much more probable that they are later Roman mounds. Both are around 2.5 metres high (although one is flattened at the top) and about 20 metres in diameter and both have surrounding ditches. It is said that one of the barrows was found to have a pit containing cremated bones.|
