Knusel, C.J. and Batt, C.M. and Cook, G. and Montgomery, J. and Muldner, G. and Ogden, A.R. and Palmer, C. and Stern, B. and Todd, J. and Wilson, A.S. (2010) 'The identity of the St Bees Lady, Cumbria : an osteobiographical approach.', Medieval archaeology., 54 (1). pp. 271-311.

Abstract

Using an Osteobiographical approach, this contribution considers the identity of the woman found alongside the St Bees Man, one of the best-preserved archaeological bodies ever discovered. Osteological, isotopic and radiocarbon analyses, combined with the archaeological context of the burial and documented social history, provide the basis for the identification of a late 14th-century heiress whose activities were at the heart of medieval northern English geopolitics.
