The Great Barrow-stone

Near the Old Forest upon the western edges of the Barrow-downs is a great mound upon which is set a single massive stone. This great pillar is larger than any other in the downs, as is the hill upon which it rests. It is cold to the touch on even the hottest days of summer and legends speak of a curse that has been laid upon it, to plague whoever enters the Barrow-downs with the intention of depredating the dead of their riches.
