Some 17 individuals sampled for the BPP can be assigned to the Neolithic period, either on the basis of radiocarbon dating (n=12) or because of their contextual associations (n=5). In some cases (such as Liffs Low, Derbyshire) the selection had been deliberate: they were known to be Neolithic when they were chosen, with the intention being to provide comparative data; but in other cases, the individuals had been assumed to belong to the 2500-1500 BC core period and their dating came as a surprise. The new dates obtained by the BPP make a significant contribution to our understanding of Neolithic funerary practices in England.
