Abstract :
A cemetery was partially excavated during 1992. Skeletons and unstratified bones were recovered. There were no grave goods and burials were aligned east-west. Radiocarbon dating indicates that the cemetery was in use during the 10th c. Very few cemeteries of this period have been excavated in Buckinghamshire. The cemetery is also of interest in that it is some distance from the present church. Discusses the cemetery in the light of local settlement patterns in Milton Keynes in the late Saxon and medieval period. Discusses small finds including pottery. ;
