Building boom after 4000 years - Neolithic barrows are being built again as burial mounds for modern Britons.<br />
<br />
Prehistoric tombs used to store the ashes of loved ones are being built on UK soil for the first time in thousands of years. <br />
<br />
Until now Neolithic earth mounds built over the dead, known as long barrows, had not been used since around 2,000 BC. <br />
<br />
The limestone frame covered in soil and grass was entirely handmade by a team of four stonemasons using traditional techniques over the course of five months. <br />
<br />
The firm will be selling 400 plots, or niches, near St Neots, Cambs, for between £1,950 and £7000.
