"Found a few kilometres from Stonehenge, the graves of the Amesbury Archer and the Boscombe Bowmen date to the 24th century BC and are two of the earliest Bell Beaker graves in Britain. ... Isotope analyses suggest that both graves were those of incomers to Wessex. ... The [grave] objects have strong continental connections, and the stone metalworking tool or cushion stone in the grave of the Amesbury Archer may explain why his mourners afforded him one of the most well-furnished burials yet found in Europe. This excavation report contains a series of ... studies and scientific analyses ... and a discussion of the graves within their British and continental European contexts."--Page 4 of cover
