A Bell Beaker individual was uncovered in a ditch of Wilsford Henge seven miles south of Marlborough, Wiltshire.
*Update* Nick T points to the press release in the comments section. The individual is an adolenscent, still don't know the gender or age. The individual was buried with an amber necklace, which I think indicates he was male (we'll see). You may remember another adolecent (male) was discovered near Stonehenge two or three years ago, also weaponless with a rich amber necklace. Will be exciting to see this develop.
From the Marlboroughnewsonline:
"Archaeoligists unearth a skeleton in a Bronze Age burial at the Wilsford Henge excavation near Marden" Tony Millet 22 July 2015
The individual, gender unreported, was buried with characteristic beaker pottery and a bead necklace. The archaeologists have given samples for isotopic analysis. Maybe, since this is the modern age and not the 1950's, someone will take a DNA sample for full genomic analysis. But hey!
It's difficult to know the orientation looking at the drawing, but it appears the individual is head north, facing West, unless it is a woman head south, facing East and the drawing is upside-down(?) Jim Leary, the project leader, accepted the public for several days who turned out by the hundreds. Lucky them!
At the nearby Marden Henge, the same team had in 2011 found a sauna dating roughly to the same period.
Several other excavation trenches are part of the project looking at a Roman farm, pigs bones, weird pottery and other things. Wildsford and Marden Henges are in the Salisbury plain that includes some of the famous monuments like Stonehenge.
