Interpretation Infant burial in an imbrex, very badly preserved. Since all of the bones were still in place (as in grave SU 1460) there was no water in the sewer anymore when the graves were dug. Because the space within the imbrex was empty and the bones would have been washed away if the sewer would have been still in use.
