Modern warriors help excavate ancient ones

British soldiers taking part in an excavation in Wessex found fellow soldiers buried 1,400 years ago. The modern soldiers were part of a rehabilitation program for those who were wounded in Afghanistan.

The burials are believed to be Anglo-Saxon and are located within a larger, much older cemetery. One warrior was buried with a spear and bronze-covered drinking cup. Another was buried with his shield covering his face.

They also found other bits of weapons, beads, and jewelery.
