Went to Dr.Sherlock's lecture in Whitby on the 'Saxon Princess' last saturday, on the Street House excavations, 109 saxon burials lying in a square inside an Iron Age enclosure, and of course the Neolithic burial cairn not far away. Saxons are getting more interesting in their burial rites, seem to bury there people very near to much older burial sites... moss Posted by moss
