When the barrow was of earth, this was effected by an encircling trench or a low vallum.
When the barrow was a stone structure, the enclosure was usually a circle of standing stones.
Sometimes, instead of a chamber formed above ground, the barrow covered a pit excavated for the interment under the original surface.

As far as the circlesquaring functions are concerned, it would seem that Gregory was the first (in 1670) to make known the series for the arc in terms of the tangent, the series for the tangent in terms of the arc, and the secant in terms of the arc; and in 1669 Newton showed to Isaac Barrow a little treatise in manuscript containing the series for the arc in terms of the sine, for the sine in terms of the arc, and for the cosine in terms of the arc.
