Prehistoric barrows were not only monuments to the dead but mounds for the living—making out land, defining pathways, acting as powerful symbols, and forming a major part of perceived landscapes which welded nature and human history together. Concentrating on the long and round barrows of Neolithic and Bronze Age date, but also covering Iron Age square barrows, Ann Woodward employs accounts of many excavations and field projects, as well as her own research, to provide one person's view of how barrows fit into British prehistory.
