|Description ||Wayland Smithy, Oxfordshire. A Neolithic chambered long barrow 2km from the Uffington White Horse. The remains of 14 people, three of whom were probably killed by arrowshots, were discovered in 1962-3, but precise dating is now able to narrow the date of their burials to within a decade or so, between 3590 and 3560BC. This opens up the possibility that these people could have died together as a result of a massacre, possibly in a scramble for land or a cattle raid.
