Enclosures, Stoke Hammond 26957_027

Neolithic long mortuary enclosures in Stoke Hammond, Buckinghamshire
Features below the plough soil that cause cropmarks can be man-made or natural. In this case its both. The man-made features are two elongated, capsule shaped enclosures, a circular enclosure and a few large pits. The rest are marks in the gravel, created naturally during the Ice Age. The capsule shaped enclosures are examples of one of the oldest types of monument in Britain called Neolithic Long Mortuary Enclosures. They re thought to be areas where dead bodies were placed before burial although theres debate within the archaeological community about what really went on in these enigmatic places
