Abstract:
Article discussing the two kinds of furnished graves dating to the late fifth and sixth centuries AD from southern and eastern England -- inhumation and cremation. While the `weapon burial rite' is a frequent occurrence for inhumation graves, weapons are rarely found in cinerary urns. The author argues that this divergence may relate to the contrasting roles of cremation and inhumation as mortuary technologies of remembrance linked to alternative strategies for managing the powerful mnemonic agency of weapons.
