Abstract

A segmented Bronze Age cist was discovered close to Newtownstewart Castle, Co Tyrone, in 1999. Each chamber of the cist was found to contain a pile of cremated bone and a highly decorated bipartite bowl. One of the cremations had a hollow-based arrowhead within it. Radiocarbon determinations of the cremated bone suggest that the cremations were not contemporary and raise the question of the curation of human remains.
