The accidental discovery of a 6th century grave in 1982 led to the survey and excavation of an almost complete Anglo-Saxon cemetery between 1983 and 1985. This represents the first large-scale investigation of a well-furnished Early Anglo-Saxon cemetery within the presumed boundaries of Bernicia, the northernmost of the Northumbrian kingdoms. Its location in the Tees valley frontier zone between Bernicia and Deira (ie later Yorkshire) is significant and is matched by the incompletely-investigated cemetery in Darlington and other sites between the rivers Tees and Tyne. One hundred and twenty burials were recorded, of which all but three were inhumations, the rest being urned cremations. The date range for the cemetery is based on the grave finds recovered and covers the greater part of the 6th century, possibly extending into the early 7th century. The finds indicate close links with sites as far north as the Tyne valley and with other Anglo-Saxon communities and workshops to the south in Anglian England (Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, the Midlands and East Anglia), after these regions had adopted Scandinavian modes of female dress c AD 500.
