Burials and political boundaries in the Avebury region, North Wiltshire.

Semple, S. J. (2003) 'Burials and political boundaries in the Avebury region, North Wiltshire.', Anglo-Saxon studies in archaeology & history., 12 . pp. 72-91.


This paper explores the burial record of North Wiltshire and argues that the preponderance of barrow burials and common use of ancient remains as well as a number of isolated barrow burials relates particularly to the status of this region as a fluctuating frontier in the C7th to C8th AD.
