Quick Reference


Inhumation or cremation burials added to the structure of a barrow mound (long barrow or, more commonly, a round barrow) during the course of its construction. Satellite burials are thus broadly contemporary with the mound‐building event, stratigraphically later than the primary burial(s) and earlier than any secondary burials.
