Bronze Age skeleton of "village elder" found at Cambridgeshire dig

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

The skeleton of an early Bronze Age "village elder" has been discovered in a funerary mound during an excavation.

It was unearthed at Burwell in Cambridgeshire, close to the site of a prosperous and well-established later Bronze Age village.

The body was of a "relatively muscular" man, who was at least 40 years old.

The mound was topped with a timber post so people could see "someone of importance was buried here", according to archaeologist Louise Moan.

Oxford Archaeology East project manager Ms Moan said the skeleton was remarkably well-preserved considering it was found in acidic chalky soil and it was dated to between 2500BC and 2000BC.
