On Celtic Sepulchral Remains at Tosson, near Rothbury, Northumberland
Human remains, Barrow, Iron, Weapons, Urn
Tosson, Rothbury, Northumberland, England, UK
The author describes a site in Northumberland and several similarly situated local examples. The focus of the paper is the grave goods and human remains found in a barrow. He argues that this barrow belonged to a member of a Celtic border tribe around the time of the Roman invasion, based on recognisable design elements in the urns and the style of the iron weapons.
