Viking grave goods (East Bedlington)

An enamelled bronze brooch and a bone comb of Scandinavian type were found in a barrow at Bedlington in 1859. The human remains probably belonged to a woman aged 45-60, a man in his 20s and a man in his 40s. The burials were surrounded by a line of stones. The burial is no later than the mid-10th century in date and was probably Scandinavian.
