April 29 | Dead but not forgotten: Early Bronze Age burials in North East England


Chris Fowler, Newcastle University

The period between c. 2500 and 1500 BC saw dramatic changes in how the remains of the dead were treated. This talk draws on the results of a recent analysis of over 350 Early Bronze Age burials in Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and County Durham. How and why did funerals here change during the Early Bronze Age? What kinds of objects were buried with the dead and why? Not all funerals led to burial—so why were some of the dead buried in this period, and what impact did this have?


Kind Regards,

Spencer Carter | TAS Chair & eCommunications
