Keys to the Past

Andrew's Hill, Easington (Easington)

This is the site of an Anglo-Saxon cemetery of 6th or 7th century date originally located by a chance find. A small number of grave goods were found including brooches and glass beads. The bone did not survive well, partly because the site had been very heavily ploughed.
