The Barrow Revival Project


The Barrow Revival Project looks at public attitudes and engagements with newly built chambered tombs which seek to replicate a prehistoric form for the internment of modern cremations.

As an ‘embedded researcher’, Prof. Marie Louise Stig Sørensen is following the construction of the Soulton Longbarrow by Sacred Stones Ltd and the involvement of the local landowner, Tim Ashton.

The company, formed in 2014, is dedicated to "creating meaningful final resting places for cremation ashes, inspired by the ancient burial mounds of our prehistoric ancestors."
