Possible Middle Bronze Age cremation cemetery, Doddington Littlegate



Reference Name MLI87726

Name:
Possible Middle Bronze Age cremation cemetery, Doddington Littlegate

Summary:
Possible Middle Bronze Age cremation cemetery, Doddington Littlegate

Location:
WESTBOROUGH AND DRY DODDINGTON, SOUTH KESTEVEN, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
PRN 36594
An archaeological watching brief and subsequent excavation along the route of the Silk Willoughby to Staythorpe Gas Pipeline recorded four small pits, all containing cremated human bone. All the cremations were unaccompanied, athough charcoal was present in all cases. Preservation of the group was variable, but generally poor. The group included two adults, an infant and an indeterminate individual. A radiocarbon date from one of the pits gave a date of 1295 BC, suggesting the remains belong to a Middle Bronze Age cemetery.{1}{2}
