Snail Down is an Early Bronze Age barrow cemetery on Salisbury Plain, located eight miles north-east of Stonehenge. Thirty-three mounds include examples of almost every type of Wessex barrow: bowl, bell, disc, saucer and pond type have all been excaveted there between 1953-7. The preferred burial rite at the site was cremation and disposal in burial pits. The land surrounding the cemetery is covered with the remains of ancient enclosures, ditches and other signs of habitation, suggesting that this area was in use for the last two millennia BC. This publication presents detailed analysis of an extraordinary variety of finds, backed up with illustrative material.
