Product Overview

This publication covers excavations in the churchyard of Wharram Percy, North Yorkshire. It complements a previous volume in this series (Wharram III), which was concerned with the excavation of the associated church and its interior. An extensive programme of radiocarbon dating indicates that the burial ground was established soon after the mid-10th century, before the first stone church was erected. This volume includes the definitive reports on human remains and associated mortuary practices extending from the 10th century to post-medieval times. Over a thousand skeletons were uncovered, and 687 of these were subject to detailed analysis, revealing a wealth of information about the diet, health and mortality of the parishioners.
