Galewood Anglo-Saxon burials (Ewart)

In about 1852 a burial was discovered at Galewood, thought to be of Anglo-Saxon, or early medieval, date. The burial consisted of the remains of a body together with two bronze rings, a pottery vessel and two iron spearheads. From the number of objects found it is possible there were originally two burials here. Later small excavations near Galewood, in the 1990s, failed to find any archaeological features.
