Bell Beaker Blogger: Ava from the Highlands (BBC)

I’ve come across another interest post relating to the Achavanich Beaker Burial project, this time featured on the Bell Beaker Blogger’s website here: Bell Beaker Blog: Ava from the Highlands (BBC)

The author, known only as ‘bellbeakerblogger’, has provided an insight into the tradition of  head binding, not just on a continental but a global scale with comparisons drawn from enthnographic examples including Navajo, Monglia and Sweden and has related it to a Bell Beaker context. It makes for an interesting read, as do many of the other posts on the blog, such as the one on Women in Iberia.
