Olga believes the terminal cell at the foremost part of the mound would have been the focal point for any rituals which took place.

Entering the mound is a mildly uncomfortable experience, requiring visitors to crouch, chimp-like, to negotiate the nine metre passageway leading to the chamber.

Olga says this was probably to conceal the main area for ritual from uninvited eyes.

The passage opens up into the main chamber, which takes a cruciform shape. Two side chambers to the north and south were the burial plots for the dead.
