The Naval Hospital Cemetery in Brooklyn was established in 1831 and was closed in 1910. In 1926, the Navy disinterred burials from the cemetery and subsequently reinterred them at Cypress Hills National Cemetery, also in Brooklyn. This research effort was conducted by the Navy to address the issue of military burials that are not documented as having been removed from the Naval Hospital Cemetery during the 1926 disinterment action. During the Navy's research on the cemetery, discrepancies regarding the number of burials and disinterments at the cemetery, as well as missing, incomplete, and contradictory information, were frequently encountered. These research obstacles have made it impossible for the Navy to provide definitive answers to the stated research goals. However, despite these challenges, a great deal of information was collected, including data on those Sailors, Marines, and members of their families who may not have been disinterred.

Presents comprehensive archaeological data from fieldwork at Khuzhir-Nuge XIV. Mortuary sites have provided the primary data that inform a number of research modules designed by the project. Of the several gravesites dating to the Neolithic and Bronze Age located and excavated in the Little Sea of the Lake Baikal coast, Khuzhir-Nuge XIV is by far the largest. This monograph is dedicated to a descriptive account of the excavated archaeological features and artifacts collected, as well as several analytical papers on grave architecture and mortuary protocols.

Two Cemeteries From Bristol S Northern Suburbs

Two reports are published in this volume: excavations in 2004 at Henbury School, Bristol (by Derek Evans, Neil Holbrook and E.R. McSloy) and excavations in 2005 at Hewlett Packard, Filton, South Gloucestershire (by Kate Cullen, Neil Holbrook, Martin Watts, Anwen Caffell and Malin Holst). Excavations in 2004 at Henbury School, Bristol, revealed the truncated remains of 21 inhumation burials, making a total of 28 burials recorded at the site since 1982. Of these, 24 burials formed a dispersed cemetery of crouched inhumations, the vast majority of which were aligned north/south and lay on their left sides, with equal numbers of males and females (where sex could be determined) and only one child. Poor bone survival rendered radiocarbon dating invalid, and the cemetery is dated by only one grave good: a finger ring from the mid to late Iron Age. However, the cemetery clearly pre-dated a later rectangular enclosure of very late Iron Age (early 1st-century AD) date. Crouched inhumations from the later Iron Age are known from the region but usually from pits or scattered, so the presence of this cemetery at Henbury is significant. Inhumation cemeteries of this date are rare in Western Britain, although they may have been quite widespread. Despite the dearth of surviving features within the subsequent enclosure, the scale of the ditches suggests it was a farmstead, and environmental evidence hints at both livestock rearing and cereal cultivation. Subsequent Roman activity was clearly intensive, and included a further four burials; although difficult to interpret, it adds to a substantial amount of evidence for Roman activity to the north-west of Bristol. Excavations in 2005 at Hewlett Packard, Filton, revealed the truncated remains of 51 inhumation burials within an isolated post-Roman cemetery. All of the burials were extended and east-west aligned, and were arranged in rows and groups. The tradition of east/west-aligned graves is a common late Roman and post-Roman practice, and these were not necessarily Christian. The largest group comprised 24 burials clustered around a central grave that contained an unusual skeleton and evidence for a distinctive burial rite. Overall there were slightly more females than males (where sex could be determined) and ten children. Adult stature could only be calculated in a few cases; males were generally taller that the early medieval average, females shorter. No grave goods were recovered, but four radiocarbon dates obtained from human bone suggest a period of use sometime between the 5th and 7th centuries AD. There was no evidence for contemporary settlement within the immediate vicinity. Other post-Roman cemeteries that are culturally distinct from Anglo-Saxon influenced burials are known from the region. The absence of Anglo-Saxon cemeteries in South Gloucestershire suggests this area remained under British control in the 5th and 6th centuries. The abandonment of this cemetery may have been the result of changes in the religious landscape once the area finally came under Saxon control in the late 7th century.

Inhumation Rites In Late Roman Britain

Keegan's analysis, a dissertation, of the ways in which the Roman emphasis on gender roles affected the burial of both sexes is based on data from four cemeteries which were all in use during the late 3rd and 4th centuries AD: Lankhills cemetery in Winchester, Butt Road cemetery in Colchester, Poundbury cemetery in Dorchester and Bath Gate cemetery in Cirencester. In what is largely a theoretical study, Keegan presents models for analysing data such as artefacts and grave and skeleton postion. Keegan also asks what is it that engenders a sexless skeleton ad what defines a person as male or female.
