- Curator's comments
- The two Late Iron Age Welwyn burials were found in 1906 during the cutting of a new route for the road from Hertford into Welwyn, through a gravel knoll to the south of Prospect Place (Hertfordshire HER no. 158).
Vault A was discovered in October 1906, Vault B in November, and a further smaller burial was found in December 1906.
The published map (Smith, 1911) gives two findspots for the Welwyn vaults. Neither of these corresponds precisely with the symbols marking the findspots on the 1923 OS map, which may be more accurate.
