Death, Burial and Identity
3000 years of death in the Vale of Mowbray

Although this [Bridge Road, Brompton-on-Swale] was only a small Roman funerary assemblage, its significance has been greatly enhanced, as it now forms part of a much larger group of Roman and early post-Roman burials, totally nearly 400, which have been excavated at various locations around the Roman town and the nearby roadside settlements at Bainesse and Scurragh House. NAA have recently carried out analysis of all of the burials from this wider area and what they can tell us about developing burial practices through the Roman period in the area and the identity of the deceased, the development of the settlements and the character of society which occupied them.
