Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance as a well preserved burial mound which has the potential to enhance considerably our understanding of prehistoric burial and ritual practice. The monument is in addition important because an area of prehistoric land surface will be sealed beneath the mound; this might provide important information on early agriculture.
