Abstract:
Unidentified burials had been found at Spong Hill, North Elmham, Norfolk, since the early 18th century, but the site was not formally excavated until the 1960s when Peter Wade-Martins and Barbara Green set out to record the whole cemetery, by then recognised as Anglo-Saxon, when it was thought to be threatened by gravel extraction. Although site reports and the burial catalogues were published, full analysis of the records was not possible until recently due to the size of the cemetery, which included around 2,500 cremation burials. In 2009 funding from English Heritage enabled a new project to completely reappraise the burial records and re-examine most of the artefacts. The project brought new life to an already iconic excavation and a new interpretation of the events of the 5th century AD, when much of Roman Britain began to become Anglo-Saxon England. This article gives an account of the excavations and discusses the site in its regional and wider context. LD
