Found this on the Modern Antiquarian, in a post from Rhiannon. Grateful thanks:
"... the scale and nature of military interference is startling. [C.C.] most vividly remembers his first visit to Bowl's Barrow, one of the most important spot sites in the SPTA, where he found recent tracked-vehicle marks scouring deeply through its ditch and the "no-driving" sign squashed into the mud of the new track."

From Wilts CC site:
|Long barrow known as Bodelus Beorh in AD968 opened by W Cunnington 1800 & 1803, John Thurnam 1864, and W & H Cunnington 1885-6. Primary deposit of 14 skulls, 5 or more with bones in disorder. Remains of 7 or more oxen and a block of bluestone. 3 intrusive skeletons appear to be Saxon. Aubrey Burl argues that the bluestone was transported to the area by glaciation as Cunnington found the stone in 1801 and therefore it cannot have come from Stonehenge as earlier postulated.|

Unfortunately I'm rather far from the National Library, and so can't easily check references -- doers anybody know this one? If it really is 16 pp long, it may have some useful info in it.......
