We've covered a lot in the last few months. Today we ask the questions: what have we learnt from all that archaeology? Does the past have anything left to teach us in the modern world? Unsurprisingly, I think the past does have some things to teach us. In this episode, we'll discuss the role of religion in society and how societies to change. We'll…
 
Wetwang Slack is home to one of the largest Iron Age cemeteries in the UK. Every burial lies beneath a square barrow, a unique and strange structure. Some of those strange inhumations were weirder than your average square barrow, they were chariot burials. This episode focuses on the rise of hierarchy and chiefs in the middle Iron Age. We talk abou…
 
Danebury is one of Britain's best-excavated hillforts. Amongst the ramparts and roundhouses were found scores of grain pits containing dozens of bodies. Many had the tell-tale signs of post-mortem decapitation, potential evidence of a much mythologised Celtic headhunting cult. This episode focuses on the society and culture of the early and middle …
 
Cladh Hallan - a small site on a Scottish island. This remote place was the site of the strangest moment in British prehistory. 3100 years ago, people were laid to rest. However, these people had died a long time ago, 500 years ago in fact! They had been mummified and then fixed with body parts of other people. This episode focuses on the Middle an…
 
Amesbury Archer, the British Tutankhamun, the richest burial in prehistoric Britain. He has been called a king, a priest, a hunter, warrior or humble trader. Who was he? This episode focuses on Bronze Age civilisation. How did people interact? How was power gained and maintained? Prepare for archery, seafaring and a lot of talk about round barrows.…
 
Stonehenge, the greatest archaeological site in Britain. It was the focus of religious worship for more than 6000 years. In this episode, we begin a two-part discussion on the religion, politics and civilisation of Bronze Age Britain. We're talking Welsh miners, epic feasts and stupendous efforts, and not an alien or druid in sight! *** Talk to me:…
 
We're still in the beautiful islands of Orkney. This time we're talking about how society develops, the role religion plays in developing society and who exactly was in charge of all this activity 4500 years ago. Oh, yeah, plus seaweed eating sheep and sea eagles. *** Talk to me: oldbonespodcast@gmail.com --- Support me at Patreon: https://www.patr…

What's that coming over the hill? Is it something Halloween-y. No. It's about farmers. The very first people to farm in Britain. This is a bigger deal then you might think.

Content Warning: This episode contains quite graphic descriptions of cannibalism. In this episode, we travel to Gough's Cave, where we'll be spending a couple of episodes. This time we're in the Palaeolithic, the Old Stone Age, for the very last time, talking about the difficulties that come about when glaciers fight with a warming world. Support m…
 
30 000 years ago, someone was buried in a welsh cave. 200 years ago they were dug up by an absolute madman. This episode we talk about the Red Lady of Paviland, the discovery of the skeleton and what we can learn from this discovery. Think hunting, religion and palaeolithic gender studies!
