Lecture: Chariots Spears and Swords – Excavations on the Iron Age Cemeteries in Pocklington. - Paula Ware.

Following the publication of the full report, Chariots, Swords, and Spears: Iron Age Burials at the Foot of the East Yorkshire Wolds edited by her longtime colleague Mark Stephens, Paula Ware, Managing Director at MAP Archaeological Practice Ltd, will be providing what is bound to be one of the most exciting lectures in this season. Excavations at Burnby Lane and The Mile, Pocklington revealed two chariot burials with horses, the Mile chariot buried intact with upright horses positioned as if pulling the vehicle. In the floor of the chariot lay the skeleton of a male above a highly decorated shield. Scientific research has provided remarkable details of the life and death of well over a hundred occupants of these internationally significant Iron Age cemeteries.
