A Summary Report on a Small Middle Bronze Age Cremation Cemetery at Lovedean, Hampshire
Two isolated Bronze Age cremation pits were found at Lovedean, Hampshire, each of which contained a barrel or bucket urn considered to belong to the Deverel-Rimbury tradition of the Middle Bronze Age. Each contained cremated bone, albeit in small quantities. A single adult was identified from one urn while the material from the other was too small to allow any diagnosis of age or sex. Of two similar pits, one contained a Middle Bronze Age urn but no human remains, and the second produced no finds. During the watching brief, a single feature containing Middle to Late Bronze Age, Late Prehistoric and Romano-British pottery was revealed on the higher ground at the northern end of the site.
