IMITATION INTERMENT. Dale Manor buries a plastic skeleton in a flexed position inside two large ceramic jars, reflecting child burial practices of the Middle Bronze Age. An offering vessel, immediately to the left of the burial, was placed inside the jars. After covering the tomb with dirt, a layer of plaster was spread over its general area. The burial is placed in the courtyard of the palace, the foundations of which appear in the photo’s background.
