Quick Reference


Term used to describe the late Bronze Age communities of southern England after type‐site burial monuments at Deverel and Rimbury in Dorset. The culture is characterized by globular, barrel‐shaped, and bucket‐shaped ceramic urns, extensive field systems, and settlements with round houses. Burials are usually cremations placed in urns or in simple pits dug into the ground, and typically cluster around earlier round barrows. Metalwork dates the culture to the period between 1400 bc and 1200 bc.
