Rare Anglo-Saxon grave markers found in cathedral walls

Archaeologists are excited about the discovery of rare Anglo-Saxon grace markers in the walls of Peterborough Cathedral. The markers, which are believed to date from the 11th century, were discovered during restoration work to the cathedral.

Archaeologist Dr Jackie Hall said, "It was an incredible find, and very exciting to see such a large collection of grave markers in one small area." The markers are especially important because they mark the resting places of ordinary people, not the rich and famous.
