Description :
This paper describes the development of such a soil description system for burial mounds primarily based on borings on both protected and unprotected barrows. It is intended for characterizing various types of significant information for both interpretation of the barrow construction and evaluation of the preserving conditions within the barrow. The system may in this way contribute to the formulation of heritage strategies based on an estimation of the information potential of the barrows and the threats against them.
