Anglo-Saxon Cemetery (2018)
July 2018: Anglo-Saxon Cemetery, Scremby, Lincolnshire, England
AVAR veterans will excavate the site of an Anglo-Saxon cemetery dating to roughly 600 AD. This excavation is in conjunction with the archaeological field school run by the University of Sheffield, and is near the village of Scremby on the southern tip of the stunning Lincolnshire Wolds, England.
This site was first excavated in 2017. Elaborate brooches and exotic beads once belonging to men and women who lived in the 6th century were found strewn in the plough soil – finds that represented graves recently disturbed by cultivation.
This excavation is in conjunction with the Archaeological Field School run by the University of Sheffield.
