Artist's Description

One of the largest, most impressive and most accessible Neolithic chambered tombs in Britain. Built in around 3650 BC, it was used for a short time as a burial chamber, nearly 50 people being buried here before the chambers were blocked. Part of the Avebury World Heritage Site.
The barrow may have been constructed in at least two phases, as there is a noticeable bulge halfway along the longitudinal axis accompanied by a subtle change in direction.
It is on a high ridgeway above the Avebury stone circle (the largest stone circle in europe) between the two sites is Silbury Hill is a prehistoric artificial chalk mound (visible on the right hand side of the picture) which is an entirely man-made).
