No real answer to that question. Lots of theories and conjecture like Stonehenge. Amazing to appreciate this hill was built by hand without any machinery. Wheelbarrow by wheelbarrow or more likely bags of chalk and soil. A very laborious task. It is the biggest Neolithic...More

Amazing feat for prehistoric man to build a hill with minimal tools and ability to move large amounts of dirt. In the end you are left wondering "Why?" but in the absence of an answer remain amazed by their long term dedication to the cause.

Largest man-made prehistoric mound in Europe. Should not be climbed, but rather viewed from off the hill, especially walking south on the path from Avebury. Read up on it before visiting, such as the section in S. Marshall's "Exploring Avebury."
