Abstract/Summary

Charcoal analysis was undertaken on samples associated with inhumations and cremation burials at this Anglo-Saxon cemetery. Pyre waste proved to be heavily dominated by oak with lesser Maloideae, hazel, alder and ash wood. A rare bed burial contained young oak roundwood while a large charred oak plank in one grave appears to be a tray or board cf. that at Sutton Hoo.
