Uley Long Barrow is a partially reconstructed Neolithic burial mound, at least 5,000 years old, and impressively sited overlooking the Severn Valley. It’s known locally as Hetty Pegler’s Tump, after Hester Pegler who owned the land in the 17th century. Between 15 and 20 skeletons have been recovered from the burial mound over the years, but we know little about the subsequent history of these finds. Two skulls went to Guy’s Hospital in London, but it is said that most of the bones were reburied in Uley churchyard. The barrow as seen today is largely the result of excavation and reconstruction between 1854 and 1906.
