dc.description.abstractThis paper summarizes the results of the rescue excavation of a short cist burial of a young male. Pollen and other analyses of residues in and immediately below the accompanying beaker suggest that it had contained a drink, possibly milk, flavoured with meadowsweet and possibly containing honey. Pollen analysis also revealed that the cist had been constructed within an open, farmed landscape, probably not far from a settlement; wheat and perhaps barley had probably been grown very near the cist. A radiocarbon date of 3795 ± 28 bp (2340-2130 cal bc) has been obtained from the skeleton. Isotopic analysis of the bones, undertaken as part of the Marischal Museum's current Beakers and Bodies Project, has revealed that the young man's diet was, like that of other recently analysed British Early Bronze Age skeletons, terrestrial.en_UK
