Bronze Age society seems to have been divided into tribal areas based around an agricultural economy and it is during this period that over exploitation of the light soils in our area led to the formation of the heathlands we see today.
The countryside around Whitehill and Bordon also has an unusually high concentration of Bronze Age barrows (high status burial mounds) that form a sacred landscape. This may be linked to nationally important ritual deposits of bronze weapons and ornaments found at Whitehill and Woolmer shown above.
