Saxon burial mound of the 7th century in Berkshire. Located in the grounds of Taplow Court, now the headquarters of Soka Gakkai International. The burial mound dates from circa 620 AD and was exhumed in 1883 - the finds are exhibited in the British Museum. The richest Saxon burial until the discovery of Sutton Hoo. Finds include a gold buckle set with garnet and lapis lazuli, weapons,, drinking horns, glasses, a harp and a bronze bowl imprted from Egypt.
The mound is right next to the house, in the churchyard of a now demolished church.
Taplow Court is sometimes open to the public, and there is apparently a right of way to the mound.

As can be seen, the churchyard in which the mound is situated is surrounded by formal gardens.
