Archaeologists have just uncovered the remains of what is thought to be a 4,000 year old cremation in Cornwall.
According to Science Daily, the team were investigating a burial mound, or barrow, which had never before been excavated, when they made their fantastic discovery – an intact clay urn containing the remains of a cremation. Alongside the urn the archaeologists also found an array of other bronze –age artefacts which they are hoping will reveal more insight into the lives of the inhabitants of this ancient region and where they came from.
Ancient sites abound across Cornwall with Bodmin Moor, only half an hour’s drive from Port Isaac, being home to many stone-age henges and monoliths.
