      The archaeological record, however, reveals that burials recovered from the Forum Romanum, in the center of Rome, indicate that both cremation and inhumation were practiced concurrently there from the eighth through the sixth centuries B.C. (Toynbee ), with cremation becoming the dominant rite in Rome sometime during the middle to late Republic (Graham and .

      The grisly find of so many decapitated skeletons is very significant because it shows that there was a great diversity in funerary rites in Roman Britain. Apparently, the local settlement had developed their own practices or were members of a cult that was unique to the area or had come with a group of outsiders.   Surely not, although other elements of this late Roman ‘package’ had been adopted and aromatic residues reported in a small number of inhumation and multi-container cremation burials. With PhD studentship funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council in place for one of us (Rhea), we set out to investigate this possibility.
