Abstract:
Excavations in 2000 and 2002 on two separate sites just over the Backs in Cambridge revealed evidence for a probably seventh-century Anglo-Saxon cemetery and, possibly related to it, a settlement site of the sixth to seventh centuries. Within the cemetery, twenty-one burials in twenty graves were found, including one double grave, and the survival of bone was generally good. Five of the burials were accompanied by grave goods. These included a copper alloy bowl with beaded rim (Perlrandbecker) containing the remains of three eels, a bag ring, a curated Roman bracelet, a re-used Roman coin, a bag or pouch assemblage, an unusual pendant, a spearhead and several knives. There were no characteristically fifth-century grave goods, and this group appears to date mainly to the seventh century. Study of the skeletal remains indicates a population of mixed age and sex. The settlement site revealed evidence for one earth-fast post-hole building and two other structures associated with sunken-featured buildings or Grubenhäuser, both with probable suspended floors, together with a small number of pits, two other possible structures and a later ditch.
