The paper presents a new approach to the social analysis of Anglo-Saxon inhumation burials from the fifth to seventh centuries AD. It defines a range of stylistic attributes which encapsulate a succession of decisions and actions by others concerning the burial of a single individual. It seeks to develop a new methodology which starts with the unit of burial and works outwards in scale to the cemetery and region beyond, and applies this methododology to examine the treatement of age and sex and identify the similarities and variability which exists across a range of burial attributes. The analysis summarised here employs data derived from twelve cemeteries and examines the results at different scales, treating each cemetery both in isolation and as a member of a wider group.
