Possible sixth century inhumation with a glass claw beaker found in 1775 at The Castle by workmen. The body which was said to be complete was covered with a heap of stones, and when the ground was re-opened later a cavity large enough to contain an inhumation was found. The glass beaker is now in the British Museum. The field which includes the findspot is within a scheduled site.
