I can carry loads, large or small.
I can cover kings, short or tall.
I'm as far north that you can go,
And still be in the city of an Eskimo.

What am I?



Answer

I may have handles and wheels,
And cover tombs wide or narrow.
I'm also in Alaska's north,
And am known as BARROW.

A burial mound for a tomb.
A cart with one wheel everyone knows.
North America's northernmost city.
All are known as BARROW.

And the hint, about the title,
What was that supposed to show?
A tumulus is another word
For the burial mound, BARROW.
