Giant’s Grave Milton Hill

Giant's Grave Milton Hill

The Giant’s Grave is a long barrow, which is a burial place of Britain’s early farming communities and amongst the oldest visible field monuments (from Early and Middle Neolithic periods 3400-2400 BC).

Used for communal burial, often with only parts of the human remains selected for interment, all are considered to be important. Giant’s Grave was partly excavated in 1865, when a primary deposit including up to four skeletons was discovered with a leaf shaped flint arrowhead close by.
