What is interesting is that in the grave are some grave goods including a necklace which contains some amber beads of Baltic Amber. Some of the beads and the bracelet are made of tin and this is the earliest record of tin smelting. Tin would have been found in the area but amber would not. The grave is thought to be of a high ranking person. So how was the amber obtained and could this person have been a migrant?
I have found this about an amber site in England:
Das westlichste Bernsteinvorkommen wurde bei Cromer in der Grafschaft Norfolk an der englischen Ostküste entdeckt. Als Zeitraum für einen Tauschhandel wird 1600–600 vor Christus angegeben.
