Possible excarnation site found in Sussex

Word reaches us that Archaeology South-East have, as part of a larger multi-period excavation, found what could be evidence of a mortuary structure used for excarnation. The dig near Horsham has pushed back the dates of human occupation of the Weald to at least the Mesolithic, but the most interesting feature for us is the small enclosure some 3m square defined by a shallow gully – not unlike the structures found at Durrington Walls. Although there are as yet no definitive dates, this does look promising.
