Excavations were undertaken at land off Peters Road, Locks Heath, Fareham to investigate the extent of a Middle Bronze Age urned cremation cemetery, of which four burials had been identified in 2009. Despite heavy truncation of the site, at least 15 pits containing urns were recorded. Additional cremation urns, or fragments thereof, were also recovered. All of the cremation urns appear to date to the Middle Bronze Age, c. 1700/1500 to 1150 cal. BC and are attributable to the Deverel–Rimbury style, which commonly characterises pottery of this period across southern England. A single glass bead was the only identified grave good. The amount of cremated bone recovered from seven deposits, was very small and the weights of bone were very low when compared to the average for the time. Soil samples produced no carbonised plant macrofossils and charcoal, where present, was poorly preserved.
