The Police were initially called, who in turn called in the archaeologists.   The bones were those of a woman aged between 25 and 35, who had been buried with some of her personal possessions, including a bronze brooch (right) and a necklace of glass and amber beads. These finds were dated to the 6th century AD.  An Anglo-Saxon burial had been discovered.
