Abstract:
NU 1026. One large and five small cairns were excavated. The large cairn yielded three Beaker inhumations and two cremations, one in an Enlarged Food Vessel, the other unaccompanied. A final burial may have been inserted into the cairn during the 3rd cent AD. The 14C date for the earliest Beaker burial is 1670 + 50 BC and the second Beaker burial followed closely on this. The third inhumation, accompanied by a late type of Beaker, was probably inserted into a cairn already raised over the first two and, at this stage, perhaps c 1500 BC, the cairn could have been enlarged by the addition of a well constructed kerb. The true nature of four of the small cairns was not entirely resolved and they may have been no more than the results of field clearance. A fifth apparently covered a grave, lacking any grave goods, but for carbonised material from this there is a 14C date of 2890 + 90 BC which poses a problem in itself. Further work had to be postponed. Appended are field observations on possible enclosed cremation cemeteries and on cairnfields generally in north Northumberland. Au(abr)
