Abstract: From Introduction: The site of Killeaba, a natural glacial mound utilised as a burial site from the Middle Neolithic to the Early Bronze Age in the North of the Isle of Man, was excavated from 1968 to 1969 by A.M. Cubbon (Cubbon 1978). In this paper, new radiocarbon dates for the site − which were gained from the analysis of cremated human bone (see Lanting and Brindley 1998: 1-8) – are presented and discussed. A re-phasing for the site is proposed based on these new radiocarbon dates, a re-analysis of the pre-existing radiocarbon dates (gained from charcoal and wood samples taken at the time of the original excavation), and the stratigraphy of the site. The activity at Killeaba is broken down into four phases. In this paper, changing burial practices at the site are traced from the Middle Neolithic to the Early Bronze Age.
