Excerpt from The Archaeological Journal, 1846, Vol. 2: Published Under the Direction of the Central Committee of the Archaeological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland The church consists Of a fine chancel, a central tower, and a nave; with aisles extending from the western front Of the building to the eastward face of the tower; a south porch, and a vestry attached to the north side Of the Chancel. The nave and chancel are of about the same height, that is, their roofs are nearly on the same level; but the base-moulding, which runs round the whole, is varied in its level by several breaks, being considerably lower in the west than in the east front. This, as well as the string-course under the windows, is uniform throughout, except in the additional chapel. Both ends are finished with an embattled parapet, instead Of a gable, the central battlement being raised in two stages, so as to suit the pitch Of the roof, which accordingly is very low. In fact the only gable in the chru ch is that of the vestry, which has almost as low a pitch as it is possible to give. The parapet Of both Chancel and nave is embattled, and has pinnacles Of a square section, with delicately em battled horizontal strings, (instead Of gables or canopies, ) their faces being set cardinally. They are not crocketed but have a well-executed finial. This kind Of pinnacle is in excellent cha racter, and well suited to the building.

Excerpt from The Archaeological Journal, Vol. 77: Published Under the Direction of the Council of the Royal Archaeological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland for the Encouragement and Prosecution of Researches Into the Arts Monuments of the Early and Middle Ages The Sacrament of Matrimony is represented at that crucial point in the ceremony when the priest is uniting the hands of a couple. He is vested in alb and crossed stole and wears a beard and long hair. Two acolytes accompany him, one of whom holds the open ritual. As well as the bride and bridegroom, there are two other persons; and our Lord is represented at the back of the panel emblem atic of His blessing marriage at Cana of Galilee. The traditional face of Christ is well portrayed: the hair is long, there is a circular nimbus, and His vesture consists of an alb and crossed stole.

Deviant Burial In The Archaeological Record

This edited volume contains twelve papers that present evidence on non-normative burial practices from the Neolithic through to Post-Medieval periods and includes case studies from some ten countries. It has long been recognised by archaeologists that certain individuals in a variety of archaeological cultures from diverse periods and locations have been accorded differential treatment in burial relative to other members of their society. These individuals can include criminals, women who died during childbirth, unbaptised infants, people with disabilities, and supposed revenants, to name but a few. Such burials can be identifiable in the archaeological record from an examination of the location and external characteristics of the grave site. Furthermore, the position of the body in addition to its association with unusual grave goods can be a further feature of atypical burials. The motivation behind such non-normative burial practices is also diverse and can be related to a wide variety of social and religious beliefs. It is envisaged that the volume will make a significant contribution towards our understanding of the complexities involved when dealing with non-normative burials in the archaeological record.

More than quarter of a century ago Richard Bradley published The Passage of Arms. It was conceived as An Archaeological Analysis of Prehistoric Hoards and Votive Deposits, but, as the author concedes, these terms were too narrrowly focused for the complex subject of deliberate deposition and the period covered too short. A Geography of Offerings has been written to provoke a reaction from archaeologists and has two main aims. The first is to move this kind of archaeology away from the minute study of ancient objects to a more ambitious analysis of ancient places and landscapes. The second is to recognise that problems of interpretation are not restricted to the pre-Roman period. Mesolithic finds have a place in this discussion, and so do those of the 1st millennium AD. Archaeologists studying individual periods confront with similar problems and the same debates are repeated within separate groups of scholars – but they arrive at different conclusions. Here, the author presents a review that brings these discussions together and extends across the entire sequence. Rather than offer a comprehensive survey, this is an extended essay about the strengths and weaknesses of current thinking regarding specialised deposits, which encompass both sacrificial deposits characterised by large quantities of animal and human bones and other collections which are dominated by finds of stone or metal artefacts. It considers current approaches and theory, the histories of individual artefacts and the landscape and physical context of the of places where they were deposited, the character of materials, the importance of animism and the character of ancient cosmologies.

The Oxford Handbook of the Archaeology of Death and Burial reviews the current state of mortuary archaeology and its practice, highlighting its often contentious place in the modern socio-politics of archaeology. It contains forty-four chapters which focus on the history of the discipline and its current scientific techniques and methods. Written by leading, international scholars in the field, it derives its examples and case studies from a wide range of time periods, such as the middle palaeolithic to the twentieth century, and geographical areas which include Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia. Combining up-to-date knowledge of relevant archaeological research with critical assessments of the theme and an evaluation of future research trajectories, it draws attention to the social, symbolic, and theoretical aspects of interpreting mortuary archaeology. The volume is well-illustrated with maps, plans, photographs, and illustrations and is ideally suited for students and researchers.
