The Missing Mound of Durrington

These photos are taken from Colt Hoare's The Ancient History of Wiltshire (engraving by James Basire after Philip Croker) and Geoffrey Wainwright's report on his excavations of Durrington Walls. Apologies for the quality of the snaps, when I have time I will retake them and write them up at length.

Structure A was just south of the bank and ditch and is no more. That Hoare could dig 3.3m down into it shows it was big. Was it a barrow or a mound?
