A Brief History of Seven Hills
The name Seven Hills refers to the area containing a group of ancient tumuli dating from the Bronze Age. There may or may not have been seven – it was a number often used to describe an unknown quantity.
Only one of the tumuli lies within the boundary of Porters Covert, in an area left undeveloped, so that none of the archaeology has been disturbed. Very fittingly, the tumuli, or bowl barrows, were used for burials or for burials of cremated remains.
