|Description ||Reconstruction drawings showing the different ways Neolithic communities closed their burial sites: at Ascott-under-Wychwood, the chamber was walled up; at Hazleton offerings were made; at Fussell's Lodge the wooden mortuary chamber was burnt and a large barrow constructed; and in West Kennet, people simply stopped placing corpses in the tomb. These differences indicate that contemporary Neolithic societies are much more varied than we previously thought. Image copyright English Heritage, used with permission.|
