The remains of four Anglo-Saxon adults which date back to the 6th century, have been found near the River Ise in Northamptonshire, England.

The graves, 12in (30cm) below ground level, were found during the work to create a new backwater at the River Ise at Rushton near Kettering.

A 6th Century bowl was also found in the graves.

Archaeologists said they were “excited” by the graves, which have since been covered again with soil.
