Here we discuss some implications of the presence of a particular male double-grave from a Bronze Age burial mound at Karlstrup, Denmark and place that burial in the wider context of changing burial practices from the Late Neolithic to the Early Nordic Bronze Age (ENBA). To do this, we focus our discussion on the temporal funerary contexts of the burial mound in which a same-sex male double grave was the final burial. We overview this particular mound’s dynamic use-life through time as echoing a wide and changing understanding of such places and their relation to changing social and economic roles of individuals within the prehistoric communities which raised them.
