Abstract


NT 289390. Report on the excavation of the cist is accompanied by a list of all 98 known British Beaker/Bronze Age multiple cremation deposits, i.e. those representing pre-consignment collections of the remains of more than one individual. The conclusion of a wide-ranging discussion is that even a simple cist may house the remains of a long series of human acts.
