Introduction

The cemetery at Heath Wood, Ingleby, Derbyshire is the only known Scandinavian cremation cemetery in the British Isles. It comprises 59 barrows, of which about one-third have been excavated on previous occasions, although earlier excavators concluded that some were empty cenotaph mounds. From 1998-2000 three barrows were examined. These investigations suggested that each of the barrows contained a burial, although not all contained evidence of a pyre. A full report of the 1998-2000 excavations, alongside a summary of the earlier finds was published in the Antiquaries Journal 84 (2004). The physical archive has been deposited in Derby Museum. This digital archive preserves a small number of additional digital data sets, primarily specialist reports and databases.
