Anglo-Saxon cemetery, Foxton

History of Anglo-Saxon cemetery

In 1922 the excavation of a La Tène settlement site about half a mile north-west of Foxton Church in 1922 revealed two Anglian inhumation burials. Two others had previously been discovered by gravel diggers. A small bronze buckle at the waist of one of the skeletons is probably unique: a bronze fish, a pike, in high relief.
