    Migration Era cemetery found in Lincolnshire Wolds

    "More than 20" Anglo-Saxon bodies have been excavated at Scremby, Lincolnshire, in a newly discovered Migration Period cemetery. There are some remarkable grave goods among the female skeletons. No talk of aDNA analysis yet but other scientific work will be carried out.
    This could be important as there may be some first generation immigrants among the remains. Let's hope new discoveries such as this will encourage DNA work to be commissioned by the next generation of archaeologists. Perhaps one day we'll even see a comprehensive Migration Period study covering both sides of the North Sea.

    Here's a quote from the piece. Link follows below:

    "The human remains are undergoing a complete osteological assessment, whilst stable isotope analysis of teeth and bone will identify where the individuals grew up as children and what food resources they ate."

    Exciting news! So the see they were Jutes....
    Hopefully aDNA is part of their research Jonik!

    This is fantastic! I hope aDNA makes its way in. That'd be brilliant.

    They could have been Jutes. Angles are likely though given the area. Some Kentish/Jutish artefacts have been found on other Anglian sites, eg in the Peak District. Either way, they were probably from around the Jutland peninsula.

    I wouldn't discount the possibility of some Jutes amongst Angles in this case, but we are dealing with two groups of people from the same geographic area, I would imagine there was some overlap in their material styles.

    Good news, nevertheless!

    Looks like it's been taken down. The only info I can find online now relates to organising the digs.

    Yeah it has been taken down, I think there was a comment from the actual university asking for contact between HeritageDaily and the University.

    Fortunately, you provided the jist of it and even if they only do the stable isotope analysis, it’ll be interesting. Hopefully, they’ll go beyond that but we’ll see.
