Abstract:
Following evaluation, a 1600m2 open area excavation was undertaken on land at Westfield Farm, Ely, between the 29th of November and the 22nd of December 2006. During the course of this work fifteen plough-damaged graves were uncovered, dating from the late 7th century AD. The majority of these burials were oriented west-east and nine were accompanied by grave goods, with two graves in particular containing rich assemblages. The first of these graves was a centrally located 'founder burial' which may originally have been sealed beneath a barrow, the second was one of the few satellite interments to have been placed on a non west-east alignment. The cemetery is contemporary with the foundation of the first monastery at Ely, and appears to contain at least one elite female individual.
