Lunt Roman Fort and Coventry Airport are situated in Baginton, right next to it a construction site was under work for housing development. Out of nowhere, two burials were found at the place. One was the Anglo-Saxon grave of an officer of high status, and richness and another was of a girl aged between 6 to12. Archaeologists surveyed the area and found many more artifacts that now are at the museum and have dated most of the items found.
A beautifully designed brooch one among the four other found with a shiny mirror-like polished surface in the girl’s burial among the bunch of other jewelry found. Cicada designed ring, an insect known for immortality and a hairpin. These are more related to southern Europe was the expert’s conclusions. Frankish vessel from the northern France and Belgium area, including Europe proves that goods and trade were present between these places those days. Centre of a shield, fragments from a blade within leather sheath a crushed copper alloy hanging bowl were some other items found in the excavation.
Nigel Page from Warwickshire County Council, who led the dig considered the finding really remarkable, also a significant discovery in the West Midlands and is breathtaking in its own way.
