Full Description: One of hampshire's curiosities, this monument in Harewood Forest was erected by a Colonel William Iremonger in 1825. The now hard to read inscription recounts the story of King Edgar killing Earl Athelwold, owner of Harewood Forest, in 963 AD for having perfidiously married Edgar's intended bride Elfrida. The story was given wider currency by the Hampshire naturalist W.H.Hudson. Fascinated like many before and after by this monument, he published a romantic version of the tale "Deadman's Plack" in 1920. Reference: HUDSON, W.H.: Deadman's Plack, an Old Thorn & Poems. Dent, 1924. Andover Library Local Collection.
