Profile

Evidence of changing cremation practices in Britain through analysis of cremated human remains

Through analysis of cremated human remains, as well as a comprehensive literature review, the research aims to identify changing funerary practice in Britain over time. This will be done by observing fracture and colour patterns in the bones in conjuncture with anthropological analysis and experimental cremation to better understand the use of fire in funerary ritual, pyre construction, changing demography of archaeological assemblages, and the agency of the cremated body.
