"One burial was very intricate with a wooden or iron frame possibly underneath the body. It may be what's known as a bed burial, but again it's too early to tell until everything is cleaned up properly," said Andrew Peachey from Archaeological Solutions. "Another appears to be a warrior burial. A spearhead and dagger were found with the bones."
