Land at the rear of 268–269 Fir Tree Road, Banstead

Excavation by Dr K Harrison on behalf of Surrey Police after the discovery of human remains during construction work, revealed the presence of a single burial. Sufficient skeletal material remained in situ to suggest the individual was buried in a crouched position, on its side and oriented north--south. There were no grave goods, associated finds or datable material in the grave fill but the burial position was consistent with a Bronze Age or Iron Age inhumation.
