MONUMENT NO. 79010

DESCRIPTION + /

During the excavation for an air-raid shelter in 1939 five Anglo-Saxon inhumations, a hanging bowl, two Roman coins used as weights, scales, work boxes and a gold bead were found. The weights and balance appear to be of late 6th or 7th centuries, but the hanging bowl is 5th century. The area was extensively excavated in 1982-3 and 1989-90. 226 inhumations were found in 195 graves, and a single cremation urn was also found. Circa 60% of inhumations were accompanied by grave goods, dating from the mid 6th century onwards.
