Anglo Saxon mound discovered in Sherwood Forest

The Nottingham Evening Post has published details of a suspected Anglo-Saxon mound in the Birklands area of Sherwood Forest which is near Ollerton.

The mound, known as 'Thynghowe' was located three years ago by a couple from Rainworth. It is possible that Thynghowe was "used by different tribes as a gathering point to resolve differences and may have marked the boundary between the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of Mercia and Northumbria."
