Notes

Remains of the pagan Anglo-Saxon cemetery at Bennett's Hill. Three burials were uncovered during archaeological investigation in 1996 and were dated to the early Anglo-Saxon period. The grave goods found with the burials included a number of amber and crystal beads, pottery, and iron and copper alloy objects, such as shield bosses, brooches, belt fitments and a knife. Metal detecting, survey and the location of finds suggest that the site extends across the modern field.
