Find out how metal working developed during the Bronze Age
Burial rites underwent a massive change in prehistoric times - find out what happened!
Find out what changes occurred, how methods and techniques developed in metal working.
The Bronze Age as defined by the three-age system dates from 2500 BC to 600 BC and originally provided a convenient chronology of the subdivision of technological advances. The period is important in that it sees the spread of the use of metals and witnesses the development of metallurgy techniques to make the most of these new resources.
Based on evidence from the archaeological record in the United Kingdom, Troy Newton takes an in-depth look at how burial rites changed between the second and third millennium BC.
You'll find out:
- What happened to the long barrows
- When and why grave goods were included
- When the change occurred from excarnation to inhumation
- When ancestor worship changed to a more individual focus
