Barrows, Burials and the Bronze Age at Doveridge

This webinar will explore Wessex Archaeology’s archaeological excavations undertaken at Doveridge, Derbyshire.

Barrows are numerous across this area of the country, however the majority of excavated data relates to often poorly documented 19th century work, and few monuments have been dug under modern conditions. In 2018 excavations of a barrow at Doveridge revealed a minimum of eight cremated individuals including a near-pristine Bronze Age Collared Urn found with two undisturbed cremation burials inside. In this webinar we’ll look at the intriguing assemblage of individuals and the mortuary practices of the Bronze Age.

You will be able to pose your own questions to our team during the webinar.
