|Notes: Row dated by C14 to the second half of the fourth millenium BC. The barrow sits on the peat rather than the old land surface on which the stones lie. It is therefore much more recent than the row. There has been some debate regarding the original position of the stones. The idea that they were laid on the surface rather than being stood upright has not been totally rejected.|
