Human Remains - Scheme Wide Research Report

Summary

Human bone - cremated and unburnt - was recovered from 17 sites, extending from the western-most site at Pepper Hill to the eastern-most at Saltwood Tunnel. The various deposits covered a wide temporal range from the Late Neolithic to the late Anglo-Saxon, with both extremes occurring at White Horse Stone. The majority of the deposits fall in the later two of the four scheme-wide temporal groupings; Late Iron Age to Romano-British (c. 300BC to AD 500) - predominantly from Pepper Hill - and post-Roman/Anglo-Saxon (AD 500-1000) - mostly from Saltwood Tunnel.

The report aims to provide an overview of the various categories of data recovered from the analysis of the human remains by phase, setting those data in their broader regional context.
