Anglo-Saxon Cemetery unearthed at Wiltshire
Excavations at Collingbourne Ducis, Wiltshire revealed almost the full extent of an Anglo-Saxon cemetery first recorded in 1974, providing one of the largest samples of burial remains from Anglo-Saxon Wiltshire. The cemetery lies 200 m to the north-east of a broadly contemporaneous settlement on lower lying ground next to the River Bourne. The results have just been published in the latest Wessex Archaeology monograph.
