The best example of a Chambered Long Barrow is at West Kennet near Avebury in Wiltshire. The West Kennet Long Barrow consists of an earth bank approximately 100 metres (330 feet) in length. The barrow tapers from a wide eastern end to a narrow western end and is flanked by two ditches. The tomb at West Kennet was found to have five burial chambers containing the remains of 50 people. These people were buried over a period of 400 years or so from about 3400 BCE.
