Sherford Sherlocks

There's a giant planned community being built outside Plymouth (Southwestern Britain) called Sherford.  Wessex Archaeology has been tasked with all the surveying and rescue archaeology.
You can get a glimpse of these barrows and other discoveries [here].

One of the finds was this guy (2200-1700 BC) who was cremated with an inverted Food Vessel. Apparently enough bone remained to have some data on height, but be on the lookout for this guy! 

Anyhow, the guy had a copper dagger with some (arsenic?) hardening.  Will Foster created this 3D visualization based on what is known of the period.
