Brymbo Man : Burials

Brymbo Man has been of such interest to archaeologists because he is rare: a Beaker burial in Wales.

So little remains of the lives of people in prehistoric times that burial sites are more important in telling us about them than our graveyards will ever be in telling the future about us.

In their world view, death was ever present in their lives. Consequently the changing burial practices of people in the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages helps to reveal their belief and social systems.
