In 1928 and 1929 the Museum recovered thirty-two graves consisting of groups of single vessels. Hull states 'none of these were remarkably early and the cemetery seems to have been used to a moderate extent fairly evenly from the end of the first century to the late third or beginning of the fourth'. <1> There were no inhumations recorded but the necklace suggests there was one. The 32 groups are published in the Museum Report.<2>
