Boles barrow on Salisbury Plain is a monument much talked about and little published. Over the last few years research in the archives has pulled together some of the findings made hundreds of years ago and also unearthed long-forgotten documentation surrounding human bones, bluestone and poetry. This talk will highlight these discoveries alongside some recent fieldwork there and possible plans for the future.
