Abstract:
Begins with a review of previous knowledge and a summary report on the latest investigations, which included fieldwalking, geophysical survey and metal detecting. Approximately half the surviving cemetery was uncovered and at least 300 burials dating from 500 AD to the early seventh century were found. The graves themselves are individually described and discussed. `The human skeletal material' is studied by Corinne Duhig (154--99). Finds include a wide range of personal objects and accessories of metal, glass, pottery, wood, shell, and amber. A section on technical analyses and reconstructions includes: `Conservation' by Celai Honeycombe (230); `Organic material associated with metalwork' by Jacqui Watson (230-5); `Textiles associated with metalwork' by Elizabeth Crowfoot (235--46), with a note on `Fibre identification' by H M Appleyard (246); `Non-ferrous metalwork' by Catherine Mortimer & Kilian Anheuser (246--50); `Ironwork: technological examination of the knives, spearheads, and sword/weaving batten' by Brian Gilmour & Chris Salter (250--6 & microfiche); `Glass beads: a technological examination' (256--8) and `Punchmarks on the copper-alloy artefacts' (258--61) by Catherine Mortimer; funerary beds; `Girdle groups: reconstruction and comparative study' by Audrey Meaney (268--75). Other chapters consider the chronology of the burials, social and demographic relationships, and the cemetery in its wider context.
