4.1 The 8th-century Anglian settlement

Interactive map

Up to the point of the excavation the metal-detector survey focused more on the area around the Anglian enclosure in the southern area, and it is notable that (with the exception of one pecked silver sceat which we associate with Viking activity and which has therefore been omitted from the map) all the 8th-century finds are exclusively associated with this enclosure (Figure 11). This is clearly when and where the Anglian settlement at Cottam B began.
