Subgroup Narrative Text

    • The fill of the grave was (740), a soft orange brown mix of sandy clay. The interred skeleton was 741, and it was lain in cut [742]. The fill held a number of inclusions as nails indicating a coffin had eroded away, and four samples were taken from the fill. Sample <1> was taken from the contents of a votive pot within the grave; sample <2> was taken from around the left foot, and sample <3> was taken from around the area of the right foot; sample <4> was taken from around the cranium. Burial 741 was heavily affected by the aerobic environment of the gravels into which it was interred, and only the humeri and the femurs, and both radius a and ulna survived. The cut [742] was dug into the natural gravels of the site area.
