Accompanied by numerous photographs and reconstruction drawings, the volume discusses the structure of the cairns, associated features, their multi-period use, what they reveal about burial rituals, and the human and animal remains found within. This is an important study of the extension of the Severn Cotswold Tombs into Brecknockshire.
