- Curator's comments
- Pottery vessel found inside grave 244 which comprised a double burial in a stone cist. The cist measured 80cm long by 50 cm wide. Amongst the grave assemblage were found seeds, a silver pendant, a silver bracelet still placed around the arm bone and a pottery vessel type 5 currently in the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology in Oxford (Catalogue Nr.1896-1908 Pr.140.). It was also found a halberd (Catalogue Nr. B.2807.), a dagger (Catalogue Nr. P.G. 41-1-661/10.) and knife all of them copper alloy with wood residues. The first two objects are currently located in Brussels at the Musées Royaux d'Art et d'Histoire. This was classified as being an adult male burial through the analysis of the grave content but also trough the classification of a cranial bone.
