More about the Anglo Saxon wif's grave
The person who was found in the wif's
grave is sometimes known as the cunning
woman. She was called this because archaeologists have
looked at all the things found with her and think she might be
someone rather special. The objects found with her are not made
of precious metals so they do not think that she was very rich
but she has some objects that are not often found in a female
grave. Her bucket pendants, her disc pendant, her spangle and
her bag are artefacts that make her grave special. Archaeologists
think that she may have been a wise woman who people in her village
might have gone to for some help and advice.
