Neolithic (pre 2000 BC)

_______________________________________

Bronze Age

There is no clear consensus on the date for the beginning of the Bronze Age in Great Britain and Ireland. Some sources give a date as late as 2000 BC,[1] while others set 2200 BC as the demarcation between the Neolithic and the Bronze Age.[2]

_______________________________________ 

Early Bronze Age (EBA), c. 2500–1500 BC

The period from 2500 BC to 2000 BC has been called the “Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age”, in recognition of the difficulty of exactly defining this boundary.[3] 

  • The Overton Period is the name given by archaeologists to a division of prehistory in Britain covering the period between 2000 BC and 1650 BC.
  • It follows the Mount Pleasant Period and precedes the Bedd Branwen Period and is named after the typesite of the West Overton barrow cemetery in Wiltshire.

Year 909 

  

Charter 43. N.D. (?909) CS 625 and Charter 44. 909 CS 626. 

*** EDWARD, king of the Anglo-Saxons, to Fritheston, bishop of Winchester. Confirmation of his title to 20 “mansae” at Uferantum (Overton) with the woodland at Tandanleage (Tadley), …, free of all but the three common dues.  

Bounds: AJ LXXXIV, 1927, pp. 172-7 (Overton); pp. 261, 262 (Tadley). It is difficult to account for the existence in the same cartulary of two different texts, this and No. 43, of identical purport and dealing with the same estates, if either is genuine.

Year 964 & 975  

Charter 113. N.D. (? 964 x 975)

CS 1152 AJ = The Archaeological Journal. 

Charter thought to be fundamentally a fabrication, but which may embody some authentic material or record a genuine transaction. 

Charter available only in later copy or copies, thought to embody the substance of the original, but having some material, probably spurious, substituted or interpolated.
