Roman Cremation weights
monty Wrote:Usually a lot less in urns than pits I seem to remember.

Stuck a pit one through a siraf last Sunday where they'd gone for a token half a dozen good sized bits of calcined bone (no fiddly small flecks) and a few hobnails, not bothered with any of the messy charcoal stuff - actually few of the pit ones from the cemetery seem to come with that much charcoal and I doubt many have more than c.100g of bone, although the ones in pots have gone off to a specialist for lab excavation so they might be a bit better
