Anglo-Saxon graveyard

History of Anglo-Saxon Graveyard, Girton College

In 1881 evidence for an extensive cemetery was discovered in the grounds of Girton College in the area of Emily Davies Court. The majority of the graves belonged to the Anglo-Saxon period, but at least six burials were Romano-British. Two cremations were buried in wooden chests.
