Details

In 1834, the excavation of a barrow at Gristhorpe, near Scarborough, revealed the grave of a man wrapped in an animal skin and buried, along with flint, bronze and whalebone artefacts, in a hollowed-out oak trunk coffin. Boiled in glue to preserve it, the skeleton remained in the Rotunda Museum until 2004, when the remains and grave goods were re-examined scientifically. This volume records in detail the results of investigations which shed new light on the life and death of this rare survival from the British Early Bronze Age. Slightly off-mint.
