Archaeologists have discovered 81 “extremely rare” tree-trunk coffins at a “previously unknown” early Christian Anglo-Saxon community’s cemetery.

Found at Great Ryburgh in Norfolk, their “remarkable preservation” was due to the waterlogged conditions of the river valley.

The Historic England excavation was carried out ahead of the construction of a pond and inundation defence system.

Chief executive Duncan Wilson said the tombs were “a significant discovery”.

Anglo-Saxon coffins seldom survive because wood decays over time.

James Fairclough, an archaeologist from the Museum of London Archaeology which led the dig, said: “The combination of acidic sand and alkaline water generated the perfect conditions for the skeletons and wooden tombs to survive, revealing remarkable details of Christian Anglo-Saxon burial practices.”

Archaeologist Matt Champion made the initial discovery.

Landowner Gary Boyce had asked him to put in trial trenches ahead of the planning application for the pond and inundation defense system. These exposed high status Anglo-Saxon pottery and Roman Samian Ware.

He said it was all the more remarkable because prior to the excavation “all the evidence suggested the field had never been developed”.

They decided to carry out a full excavation in January – and within an hour find the first of over 80 human burials. The dig was completed in June but its findings have only just been released to the press.

Historic England told other important determines included six “very rare” plank-lined tombs “believed to be the earliest known instances in Britain” and evidence of a timber structure thought to be a church.

Historic England believes the burials date from between the 7th and 9th Centuries AD and were “the final resting place for a community of early Christians”.

Research is continuing to find out where the bodies came from, how they were related and what their diet and health was like.

Some of the detects will go on display at Norwich Castle Museum.
