Archaeology Update

BBC News: An Anglo-Saxon grave discovered near Cambridge could be one of the earliest examples of Christianity taking over from Paganism, archaeologists said.


The skeleton of a teenage girl was found buried on a wooden bed, with a gold and garnet cross on her chest.


The grave is thought to date from the mid-7th Century AD, when Christianity was beginning to be introduced to the Pagan Anglo-Saxon kings.
