Green plaque № 11488 in Milnthorpe

Pre-historic Milnthorpe.
In 2005 the cremated remains of four Bronze Age burials were unearthed here during the construction of a new entrance to Dallam School. Also found were two burial urns dating from c1000 BC and a pottery shard from the New Stone Age period of c2700 BC. Their discovery 'doubled the history of Milnthorpe' as the earliest artefacts previously found in the area dated from the Iron Age c500 BC. Other archaeological evidence suggested that the burial ground was used for many centuries and had been adjacent to a small tarn. In the eighteenth century two fields on the site were called Harper Barn and William Close.
