Tumuli in Walberswick National Nature Reserve
A tumulus (plural tumuli, from the Latin word for mound or small hill) is a mound of earth and stones that has been raised over a grave. Tumuli, also called barrows, burial mounds or kurgans, can be found in many countries. When composed largely or entirely of stones they are usually referred to as cairns.

Formerly used by the military, Walberswick National Nature Reserve is one of the most diverse sites in the UK, with an internationally important and unique grouping of habitats in a small area. These include reedbeds, heath and grassland, grazing marshes, woodland, shingle, saline lagoons and the mudflats and saltmarshes of the Blyth estuary. The dismantled trackbed of the (narrow gauge) Southwold Railway > LinkExternal link traverses part of it.
