While not really answering that question, this blog does discuss some of the questions associated with such burials - [howardwilliamsblog.wordpress.com]

General discussion about interpretation of grave goods (and the contexts in which they are found) can also be found in The Archaeology of Death and Burial (Michael Parker Pearson) - [books.google.co.uk].

The particular question that you raise is addressed in this article - [www.nytimes.com].
