This paper interprets a group of innovative illustrations from
the eleventh century English manuscript, the Harley Psalter, in the
context of textual, documentary, place-name and archaeological evidence
for a uniquely late Anglo-Saxon conception of barrows, ancient monuments
and deviant burial places as places of damnation and hellish torment.
