Episode Summary

EDIT
The New Forest, Hampshire
AIRED:
Seven Buckets and a Buckle. In the middle of a field, somewhere in Hampshire, is a barrow, or burial mound, now almost flattened by centuries of ploughing. A number of Saxon graves had been identified, probably forming part of a cemetery serving the scattered Dark Age settlements in the area, and the surrounding landscape is full of features dating from pre-Roman times through to the present day. Unfortunately the site has been subject to major activity by unscrupulous metal detectorists. Time Team’s objective, then, to find out as much as possible about the cemetery before the archaeological evidence destroyed. The Team also worked to place the cemetery in its wider context as part of the Anglo-Saxon landscape, looking at how people lived at this time, their beliefs and burial practices, and investigating the trading links that led to a rare and beautiful Byzantine bucket being found in a Hampshire field.moreless
