Silbury Hill is the largest man-made mound in North West Europe. The origins of the hill appear to lie within a low turf mound piled up within a ring of wicker fencing. The entire construction took around 50 years to complete. Radiocarbon dating suggests the earliest possible date for the this work could be somewhere around 3630 BCE. It seems likely that there was some link to the celebration of the harvest.
