West Kennet Long Barrow

West Kennet Long Barrow is a Neolithic chambered long barrow in the county of Wiltshire. It's one of the largest and most accessible tombs in Britain.

It's believed that the barrow was constructed around 3650 BC as a burial chamber. The materials used in the construction were earth, local sarsen stones and oolitic limestone stones imported from the Cotswolds.

The barrow was excavated twice and remains of at least forty-six individuals have been found alongside grave goods including pottery, beads and stone tools.

West Kennet Long Barrow is situated on a prominent chalk ridge near Avebury Stone Circles in England.
