This volume provides a report on the excavation of an important Anglo-Saxon cemetery at Worthy Park, Kingsworthy in Hampshire. The excavations uncovered 94 inhumation graves and 46 cremations within an area of approximately 900 square metres, but many others remained inaccessible to the excavators and the cemetery may have contained twice this number of burials in total. The cemetery was excavated in 1961-2 by the distinguished Anglo-Saxon scholar Sonia Chadwick Hawkes, but Mrs Hawkes' report remained unpublished at the time of her death in 1999. The present editors have drawn together all the chapters and drawings left substantially complete by Mrs Hawkes, including an introduction to the site, a detailed catalogue of burials, a report on the human bone, a gazetteer of Anglo-Saxon sites in Hampshire, and a small number of specialist reports.
