4.4.30 Kilham, East Yorkshire, Humberside

Kilham parish is situated in the Yorkshire Wolds, 5km north of Great Driffield. An Anglo-Saxon inhumation cemetery dating to the 5th-6th centuries was first recorded at Kilham in 1814 and excavated in 1824 and 1953.

Metal-detecting over a number of years and geophysical survey and field-walking in 1999 had identified a settlement on the west side of Lowthorpe Beck, 1km south of the modern village. Excavations from 2000-02 revealed late Roman and Anglo-Saxon features and finds, including up to four SFBs, although most of the features appeared to be of late Roman or early Anglo-Saxon date, unlike the Middle Saxon finds recovered by metal-detecting. The VASLE dataset is derived from the PAS and the EMC.
