This report details the results of excavations within an early Bronze Age barrow cemetery in 1994. The barrow provided a rare opportunity for examining in detail Bronze Age funerary practices and associated ritual activity in a lowland context in the English Midlands. In addition, a rich group of metalwork finds was discovered - two gold armlets and a copper dagger. The evidence at Lockington poses some interesting questions - why were there grazing animals in the palisaded enclosure immediately before the construction of the mound? and why was there no body with the deposit? The authors offer answers to these questions and discuss the barrow in a regional context.
