Abstract :
The Anglo-Saxon cemetery, which dates from the early 6th to the late 7th cs., was discovered through the disturbance of five graves in 1939. Fieldwork in 1975-1990 accomplished the partial excavation of the cemetery, identifying a further 196 graves and the skeletal remains of 277 individuals. Castledyke is the first inhumation cemetery in the 'Kingdom of Lindsey' to be comprehensively reported to modern standards. The cemetery is unusual for the long duration and intensity of its use. The diversity of mortuary practice may in part be ascribed to these factors, to the estuarine location of the site, and perhaps to a more mixed population than has been encountered in other regions. Artefacts recovered include weapons, dress accessories, beads, pins, textiles and costume, personal equipment and tools, craft and weaving equipment, and pottery. Some illustrations are on microfiche. ;
