Beakers and Bodies

The latest issue of British Archaeology features and image from the University of Aberdeen Museums collections

The latest issue of British Archaeology features and image from the University of Aberdeen Museums collections; a stone cist excavated in 1923 at Upper Mains of Catterline, Aberdeenshire (former Kincardineshire) which holds the remains of a man and a beaker.

An article in this issue of British Archaeology discusses the results of the ‘Beaker People Project’, in which the University Museums was a partner. Using the latest scientific techniques for radiocarbon dating and stable isotopes, the article discusses the movement of people living over 4000 years ago in Western Europe.

A future edition of the magazine will feature related work, the ‘Beakers and Bodies Project’ funded by the Leverhulme Trust, which focused specifically on Beakers in North-East Scotland, of which the University has an impressive collection.
