Abstract:
During the late spring and summer of 1999 an archaeological excavation was carried out on c. 1.25ha of land by Herefordshire Archaeological Trust at Minerva Business Park near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. One area produced evidence predominantly of Iron Age date, comprising pits, ditches and a post hole structure. A second area contained an early Anglo-Saxon cemetery with 28 urned and two unurned cremation burials dating to between the fifth and sixth centuries AD and 34 inhumations dating to between the late fifth and early seventh centuries AD. Both types of burial were provided with grave goods, and some of the burials were richly furnished. Includes detailed report on features and specialist reports on the cremated and inhumation skeletal remains, pottery, grave goods, coinage, slag and animal bone. SH
