Back in 1990 a Saxon burial site was discovered on the Grove Farm estate.
Building work was temporarily halted so that Wessex Archaeology could investigate.
The dig uncovered people who lived in the area more than 1000 years ago.
Of course, the archaeologists worked very carefully and methodically.
Other finds could tell the experts much about the way of life led by our ancestors.
Very little of this material is at Market Lavington Museum. We are not a designated archaeology centre. But we do have many photographs and the Wessex Archaeology report.
