Anglo Saxon Cemetery

In 2008, and Anglo-Saxon Cemetery was discovered at The Meads in Sittingbourne and 227 graves were excavated. The majority of the graves contained grave goods; over 2500 objects, including weapons, dress accessories, knives and vessels. Some of the graves contained considerable numbers of objects, including several rich weapon burials (almost certainly those of men) and three, female gendered, burials with garnet-inlaid brooches, including a plated disc brooch. Many of the graves contained sets of glass, amber or amethyst beads; there were over 300 glass beads in one grave alone.
