Abstract/Summary

Excavations to the north of the village of Easington in the East Riding of Yorkshire identified a funerary landscape of Late Bronze Age, Later Iron Age and Roman cremations, as well as Roman and early medieval inhumations. The four early medieval burials included a spearhead, knives, buckles and beads. Occupation activity associated with the Bronze Age and early medieval burials was not identified, but a 'ladder-style' settlement of trackways and enclosures was established by the first century BC. This settlement underwent at least two episodes of restructuring before its abandonment, probably in the third century AD. Given a dearth of imported objects and the preservation of pre-Conquest-style building traditions, the inhabitants of the final settlement chose not to adopt the trappings of a 'Romanised' lifestyle.
