Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


A 7th century Anglian burial with girdle-hangers and a small thread-box of bronze, plainly a woman's grave, and two Viking carved bone objects were the only post-Roman finds recovered from excavations in the Roman vicus and civitas at Aldborough. In his `Isurium', Ackroyd-Smith states that Saxon urns had been found at Aldborough in the mid 16th century.
