Abstract


The urn had been placed in an inverted position over a heap of human bones only\r\npartially incinerated. These represent two adult individuals. The chisel appears never to have been completed for use. Both the bead and pin had been burnt. The pin is an unusual type. The axe is unusual for its herring-bone ornamentation which has been incised on it around the socket.
