The remains of a woman buried about 4,400 years ago have been found in England. Her necklace, adorned with five small, tubular sheet gold beads and beads made of lignite; fragments of amber buttons; and her bracelet of lignite beads suggest that she may have been from an elite family. The gold probably came from southern England or Ireland, and the lignite from eastern England. The amber may have been collected from the island’s east coast, or it may have been imported from the Baltic. Travel to England with Far Horizons!
