TVAS North Midlands: Excavations at Mouselow Quarry, Glossop, North Derbyshire
Content warning: this article contains discussion of cremated human bone
During the stripping in advance of extension at Mouselow Quarry, Glossop, North Derbyshire, a series of cremations were found.
In total four cremations were found but only one was contained in a mostly complete vessel. It is also of note that these were the only features found in the area and within close proximity to each other. They were also isolated on a false crest on the top of a steep hill overlooking the valley.
The vessel appears to be an early Bronze Age collared or cordoned urn, with horizontal linear impressed cord decoration. It is currently with our specialist who will provide us with more in-depth detail.
A full analysis of these findings will be published in a report coming soon.
