The Walking Dead: Cross-Channel connections and Funerary Practices c. 1600-1200 BC

Abstract : The Middle /early Late Bronze Age (c. 1600-1200 BC) in the cross-channel region is invariably understood through the many close connections evidenced by new metal technologies and object types. These relationships tend to be interpreted as either continuities or developments from Early Bronze Age (c. 2200-1600 BC) cross-channel communities. However, whilst scholarship on the cross-channel connections between Early Bronze Age communities has tended to focus on funerary practices, there been no recent or comparable re-evaluation of cross-channel Middle /Late Bronze Age funerary practices. This paper draws upon a comprehensive dataset of all funerary sites in southern Britain and northern France in order to investigate questions of regionality and the dead.
