Monday 29th June, associate artists Mandy Rathbone and David Rogers, assisted by Victoria Pirie, led the third ‘Sounds of the Neolithic’ sound walk with a group of students from Beaminster School. Followed by a sound editing and recording workshop on Tuesday 30th June. The Bronkham Hill group of round barrows includes four bells and one double bowl in a mile-long linear cemetery running North West-South East.

bell barrow you

I am a round barrow in which the mound and ditch are separated from each other by a berm

I see you, I salute you

I see you, berm you

I am a strip of land between a ditch and the actual mound

I see you, I salute you

I see you, bowl barrow you

I am a mound, surrounded by a ditch. I don’t have a berm

I see you, I salute you
