Abstract


A skeleton was buried with a small, pointed bronze blade, two other small pieces of bronze, a barbed and stemmed arrow-head without its shaft, and a flint knife, the last two objects being calcined. The grave was cut into the natural rock and had a cover slab. The condition of the bone suggests that it had been partially burnt and may well have been a failed attempt at cremation. Brief accounts of a beaker from a cist at Elrick Hill, a Food Vessel and a socketed axe from Pitcaple are also presented.
