Textile analysis of finds from Whitehorse Hill cist, Early Bronze Age burial on Dartmoor. Twenty-two small textile fragments were recovered from the cremation during micro-excavation of the cremation deposit in a spit 3–4cm from the surface (Chapter 3). These were described as burnt textile by the conservation team and here will be referred to as charred following the usual convention for textiles preserved in this manner.
