Bronze Age burial dig to create 'richer picture of life and death'

The excavation of a burial mound aiming to uncover a "much richer picture of life and death" during the Bronze Age on the Isle of Man has resumed.

The four-year project to examine the prehistoric site had been on hold for two years because of the coronavirus pandemic.

To date, the dig has unearthed the cremated remains of at least six people and the skeletal remains of another.

A 4,000-year-old jet necklace was also discovered at the site in 2019.

Supported by Manx National Heritage, the project is being led by Rachel Crellin, of the University of Leicester, alongside Chris Fowler of Newcastle University.

About 20 students from the two universities are taking part in the month-long dig on a hillside in the west of the island, near Kirk Michael, which began at the weekend.

Research for the project began in 2016, followed by annual excavations a year later, however the final year of dig had to be delayed due to the island's Covid border restrictions.

Dr Crellin said, while similar mounds had been explored by the antiquarians in the 1800s and early 1900s, those excavations had been limited and would often "hit one or maybe two burials".

She said: "They were missing the fact that other people get added to these sites again and again and again."
