Bronze Age tumulii / burial round barrows such as these on this summit ridge are numerous and pepper the Dorset landscape, especially on ridge tops where it is thought these graves of ancestors could be in daily view of their descendants, watching over them and constantly with them. Built over a period of 1000 years from 2500 to 1500 BC might explain why there are so many. Presumably not everyone got their own?Chris Pearson10/03/2019
