Here is a link to a recent talk that might be of interest:

Dr Caroline Goodson (King’s) hosts Dr Sam Lucy (Newnham), who is a world-recognised expert in Anglo-Saxon archaeology and cemeteries in particular, to learn more about what we know about Cambridge after the Roman period and why cemetery archaeology in particular is such a critical source of new evidence.

The discovery last summer at Barton Road in Newnham of a burial ground dating from the early Anglo-Saxon period (5th to 7th centuries) is prompting new research into old questions about life and death in a key period of the history of Britain.
