The Anglo-Saxon Cemetery at Westgarth Gardens, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk: Catalogue

Abstract

Part of the cemetery was excavated, revealing 65 inhumations and 4 cremations. Some complete skeletons were found, but in other graves the bone did not survive. However, there is no human bone report. The introduction contains an analysis of burial practice, orientation and cemetery organisation. The positioning of dress ornaments in female graves is represented diagrammatically, as is the position of weapons in male graves. The specialists' reports include textiles, and a discussion on the weapons from the graves. The catalogue contains plans of each inhumation, with the positions of the grave-goods. These are described, and illustrated as grave groups. They date from the mid-5th to the 7th century.
