Dark Age Burial on Barham Downs

REPORT BY PROF. A. J. E. CAVE, ROYAL COLLEGE OF SURGEONS.

THE skeletal remains hereunder described were unearthed by soldiers in constructing some trenches on the Downs just off the main Dover Road at Ileden. Canons R. U. Potts and J. W. S. Tomlin, and the writer, examined the site on July 5th, 1944, but no evidence remained of the grave which had been completely destroyed before notice of its discovery reached Canon Tomlin.
                                                                 W.P.D.S.

   The remains appear to represent those of a single individual, namely, a middle-aged male of Saxon stock. Although the certain determination of the historic period of ancient human remains must rest almost entirely upon concomitant archeological evidence, yet the general morphological characters of the Barham Downs cranium agree better with previously examined Saxon material than with anything
