On Wednesday 12 June, at 1pm in the Djanogly Theatre Dr Adam Daubney, Finds liaison Officer, Lincolnshire, Portable Antiquities Scheme will discuss uncovering a newly discovered Anglo-Saxon cemetery at Scremby, lincolnshire

In 2017 a metal detectorist searching a ploughed field near Scremby, Lincolnshire, discovered fragments of grave goods and pieces of human bone. The find was promptly reported to the Portable Antiquities Scheme, who in conjunction with the University of Sheffield carried out an excavation to understand the context of the site. The analysis is ongoing, but the excavation is already beginning to change our understanding of life and death on the Lincolnshire Wolds between AD475-550.

This is one of a series of FREE talks part of the Archaeology NOW series of free talks and handling sessions that focuses on current archaeological work. These talks allow professional archaeologists, related specialists and community groups to share their exciting work with us.
