This is something out of the ordinary, the kind team at the Historic Environment Image Resource Project mave made this photo available and Institute of Archaeology, University of Oxford have given us permission to share this early aerial photo of Four Barrows, the original is on a glass slide and is thought to date to the very early days of aerial photography the image is credited to AD Passmore in their records but may have been purchased by Passmore.

Just above the line of trees on the left you can see the (slight) barrows where the Aldbourne Cup was found by Canon Greenwell in the 1870s.

By the look of it I suspect that whole field wasn't being ploughed at the time, maybe it was just pasture.

The HEIR project has many old photographs from around the UK, and is public access, so why not head over to heir.arch.ox.ac.uk/ and search for anywhere you might be interested in.
