The remains of a bejewelled Anglo-Saxon woman discovered in a burial site beside a cow have been described as a ‘bizarre find’ by archaeologists.
It is thought the grave, which was unearthed in Oakington, Cambridgeshire, by Manchester Metropolitan and Central Lancashire university students, is the first of its kind to be discovered in the UK.
Researchers initially believed the animal skeleton was a horse, but after further analysis it emerged that the woman’s bones were actually lying alongside those of a cow.
Odd that. They didn’t say how old she was, but looks young (20s) from the photo.
