Keys to the Past

Burial (Hexham)

A stone-lined grave was found about 200 yards west of the cemetery wall, when a green was being made for Hexham Golf Course in 1921. The cover of the grave was of one stone, but broken into several pieces. The bones in the grave were broken and the skull was missing. This burial probably dates to the Bronze Age. There may once have been a burial mound at this site, but it could have been destroyed during the construction of the golf course.
