Three round barrow of the Wyke Down group
Three of the round barrow of the Wyke Down group. The barrow in the foreground now forms part of a field boundary while the barrow furthest from view, close to the trees, stands within the Dorset Cursus - was this a sign that whatever symbolism and meaning that the Neolithic cursus once had no longer held sway during the later Bronze Age?
