An archaeological survey and excavation was carried out at Barrington, Cambridgeshire in September 1989 to determine the extent and condition of a threatened 6th century burial ground. The burials covered an area of at least half an hectare, sitting on top of a small rise. Traces of a bank appear to delimit the cemetery. 27 skeletons were excavated of which 10 were severely damaged, and only three were virtually undamaged. Weapons, jewellery and other personal possessions including a large number of amber beads, were deposited with the burials.
