Tyne and Wear HER(884): Marsden, inhumation - Details
Religious Ritual and Funerary
The Archaeological Newsletter was quoted by Miket as follows: "A bronze age burial has been unearthed by Mr Cuthbert of the Marsden Estate, South Shields, Durham, while digging in his garden. Several bones, teeth and fragments of skull were also found. Dr I. A. Richmond has inspected the find". Miket went on to comment as follows: "The firm attribution of the burial to the 'bronze age' and a belief that Richmond would make such an identification without firm dating evidence are both incredible".
