Notes about this historic site

2 Referring to the mound at Gibbet Hill (PRN 2783), Knowles says that an Anglo Saxon sword found in a wood nearby appears to have been dug up and thrown there when the mound was destroyed. However, he offers no evidence for this and the sword may well have come from the nearby Anglo Saxon cemetery (PRN 2785).
