During the construction of a residential area within the village of Haddenham an early Saxon burial (6th century AD) was uncovered. Archaeologists found nine burials in total, with plenty of grave goods. Both men and women were buried here. Their religious background seems a bit mysterious, as the grave goods (like a decorative shield, a necklace of beads, a spear and a knife) were typically pagan, but the skeletons were aligned from east to west, typical for Christian graves.
