King's Dyke Burials

Excavated by the Peterborough Museum Field Club, there were 8 burials laid out in three short rows. Directly to the west a curving ditch produced pottery of the first- and second-centuries, and a badly worn coin of Trajan, which suggested loss late in the second-century.

The skeletons were aligned north-south, and all were male.
