Only known Anglo-Saxon burial place in north England found by freelance archaeologist. The 109-grave cemetery contained "spectacular gold jewellery, weapons and clothing."


very interesting links... thanks.
I love archeology - I probably should have studied it...
It's very interesting, but not exactly lucrative.
LOL... I'm sure!
I'm also a "princess" and don't camp well... I'm told "roughing it" in dig sites is often required, so it's probably just as well that I didn't take it on as a career.
