Duropolis:多塞特郡鐵器時代定居點骨架出土

在對農田進行考古挖掘時,發現了五個前羅馬定居點居民的遺骸。

Durotriges部落被認為從公元前100年起就占據了這個定居點,靠近今天的多塞特郡溫特伯恩-金斯頓村。

考古學家Miles Russell博士說,最新的挖掘發現了鐵器時代的 "生活方式"。

公眾可以在周日的開放日上參觀該遺址。

Durotriges部落被認為占據了這個繁華的農業定居點,有數百座圓頂屋,被稱為Duropolis。

伯恩茅斯大學的一個考古小組於2009年開始調查該遺址,旨在調查英國人和羅馬入侵者是如何互動的。

在本月初開始的最新挖掘過程中,這五具骸骨被發現在橢圓形的坑中,呈蹲姿。

拉塞爾博士說。"我們發現了一系列的墓葬物品--肉塊、裝有飲料的陶碗、來世的食品--有一種真正意義上的死後生活,他們給死者提供了去另一個地方的方法。"

深達2米(6.5英尺)的儲物坑也顯示出祭祀動物的跡象--在一個坑中發現了一匹馬的殘骸。

拉塞爾博士補充說:"我們所發現的是整個鐵器時代的定居活動--圓房、儲物坑,但也有與日常生活和宗教有關的碎片,"。

"有一系列的陶器讓我們對鐵器時代的生活方式有了深入了解。

"他補充說:"兩千五百年前,你會有數百人住在這裡--這是一個真正的職業密度。

The remains of five inhabitants of a pre-Roman settlement have been unearthed during an archaeological dig on farmland.

The Durotriges tribe is thought to have occupied the settlement from about 100BC, near the present-day village of Winterborne Kingston, Dorset.

Archaeologist Dr Miles Russell said the latest dig had revealed "an insight into lifestyles" during the Iron Age.

Members of the public can view the site on at an open day on Sunday.

The Durotriges tribe is thought to have occupied the bustling farming settlement with hundreds of roundhouses, dubbed Duropolis.

A team of archaeologists from Bournemouth University began investigating the site in 2009, setting out to investigate how Britons and the Roman invaders interacted.

During the latest dig, which started earlier this month, the five skeletons were were found in oval pits in a crouched position.

Dr Russell said: "We're finding a whole range of grave goods - joints of meat, pottery bowls with drinks, foodstuffs for the afterlife - there is a real sense of a life after death and they are giving their deceased a method of going on to another place."

Storage pits, up to 2m (6.5ft) deep, also showed signs of ritualistic animal sacrifices - with the remains of a horse found in one pit.

"What we're finding is a whole range of Iron Age settlement activity - roundhouses, storage pits but also the debris associated with everyday life and religion too," Dr Russell added.

"There is a whole range of pottery which has given us an insight into lifestyles here in the Iron Age.

"Two and a half thousand years ago, you'd have had hundreds of people living up here - it's a real density of occupation," he added.
