The site contained eighty-one inhumation burials and two cremations, accompanied by a wide range of grave goods. This cemetery, the largest of its type in Buckinghamshire to date, is probably linked with the nearby Saxon settlement at Wolverton Mill, predecessor of the modern Wolverton (in Saxon , Wulfheres Tün – ‘Wulfhere’s estate’).
