Title:Redeemed From the Peat: An Extraordinary Bronze Age Grave on Whitehorse Hill
Originator:Jones, A. + Marchand, J. + Sheridan, A. + Straker, V.
Summary:A burial cist was found in the 1990s, eroding from the ground in a remote part of Dartmoor. When preservation failed, archaeologists excavated what remained, expecting little. It turned out to contain some of the best preserved prehistoric grave goods from northern Europe. Andy M Jones, Jane Marchand, Alison Sheridan and Vanessa Straker describe an exceptional site.
