Abstract:
In June 2001 a team from Archenfield Archaeology and the University of Birmingham excavated human remains at Dewsall, Herefordshire. These bones represented at least 11 individuals of both sexes from children to adults. Carbon 14 dating indicated a likely date from the 7th to 9th centuries AD for two of the burials. Charcoal from the base of another grave suggested a date between the 2nd and 4th centuries AD. The burials were towards the southern edge of a large oval enclosure measuring approximately 270 metres east to west and 150 metres from north to south. A stream bisected this enclosure. Also within this enclosure, against its northern boundary, is the parish church of St Michael. The northern boundary of the graveyard forms part of the larger enclosure. Dewsall was within the Welsh kingdom of Ergyng in the late 6th and earlier 7th century. This had passed into the control of the kings of Glywysing in the mid 7th century. Some time in the 9th century the area became part of the English kingdom of Mercia. The cemetery, or at least part of it, may have survived all these changes, to continue in use up to the present time.
