Posted (IP: Staff) ·

A Bronze Age burial mound hidden under 40 years' worth of grass, weeds and brambles is being restored as part of a £250,000 ancient history project.

Regular visitors to Stanwick Lakes nature reserve, Northamptonshire, have said they had no idea the site - known as a barrow - was even there.

An excavation in the 1980s discovered human remains and items from graves.

Heritage co-ordinator, Nadia Norman, said the work was intended to preserve the site for another 4,000 years.

Mrs Norman said it is "the only one existing in the county which the public can access by footpath".
