Abstract: Geophysical surveys at two undated oval mounds, one near the Longwood Valley, Cheddar and the other near Hunter's Lodge Inn, Priddy, revealed both to be the remains of pairs of Bronze Age round barrows. The oval mounds were presumably created by ploughing, with the two separate round mounds transformed into a single elongated mound. These results indicate that caution should be exercised when classifying earthworks by their external form alone.
