Late Iron Age funerary practice in the Mid Anglia Region
The 'Welwyn-' and 'Aylesford-type' cremation burials are very characteristic
and evocative of late Iron Age culture and are perhaps defining aspects of a
LIA regional identity that centres upon present-day Essex and Hertfordshire.
The programme will focus on recent research on late Iron Age funerary
practice and include contributions on such subjects as the Kelvedon warrior
burial, the Folly Lane and Stanway burials, the Heybridge pyre sites, change
from excarnation to cremation and the location of burials in the landscape.
Speakers to include Paul Sealey, Gilly Carr, Ros Niblett, Mark Atkinson,
Philip Crummy, Alison Brookes and Andrew Fitzpatrick. This Autumn 2002 day
conference of the CBA Mid Anglia group will be held at the Essex Record
Office, Chelmsford, Essex. For further details and a booking form, contact:
Derek Hills, 34 Kingfisher Close, Wheathampstead, St Albans, Herts. AL4 8JJ.
