Recently I posted about the excavation of a major Anglo-Saxon cemetery at Overstone in Northamptonshire and I linked that to a recent survey across Western Europe of changes in burial practices from the fourth to sixth centuries. That post can be seen at Anglo-Saxon burial customs
Today the Mail Online has an illustrated report about the excavation of an Anglo-Saxon cemetery in the western part of Cambridge. Despite having been built over the clearance of those houses for college accommodation had revealed well preserved human remains from the same period as those covered in my post above, that is from 400-650. This was the time of primary Anglo-Saxon settlement and the establishment of the various kingdoms and sub kingdoms that made up the Heparchy and were to be the context of the conversion of these peoples to Christianity.
