Animal and Infant Burials in Romano-British Villas

A Revitalization Movement

This is an article that originated in a section of my doctoral thesis, saw light of day at a conference, and ended up in the conference proceedings Sacred and Profane (1991, OUCA). It played about with patterns in and meanings of the data, looked for women's agency in the spatial deposition of interesting things, and found the fourth century leading into the decline of Roman Britain very interesting indeed. It's a bit 'out there' - but you could say that about a lot of archaeological interpretation.
