Abstract/Summary

Large scale survey of cairn on Monkham Hill for Historic England and the Forestry Commission, following clearance of scrub. Suggested that this is an embanked platform cairn rather than a robbed barrow; a large round barrow and a newly discovered platform cairn to the northwest make this a group of three distinct types of Bronze Age funerary monuments, repeated elsewhere on the uplands of the South West peninsula.
