Cremation excavated by David Ross ready for geo-photographing.

Always a nice surprise to find a cremation Context: 1087, particularly when it’s found within what I had assumed to be the fill of a quarry pit, or dare I say it, possible brick earth quarry. The cut for this disturbed feature, sealed by a sequence of tip lines, lenses, and dumped material of indiscernible variation, thankfully became rather well defined, containing a considerable quantity of cremated bone, and two copper alloy coins, within the remains of an in-situ scatter of smashed cremation urn.

Also interesting in that it provides possible evidence of the use of this area as a burial site after it appears to have been quarried for construction materials.
