News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

There were 36 burials at Cuxton in what may have been a small Anglo-Saxon family cemetery, c 6th-7th centuries.
There are 2 pages on the Cuxton excavations in issue 168 of Current Archaeology, vol 14, # 12, May 2000.
Issue 168, (still available from the CA website http://www.archaeology.co.uk/) is a special Kent issue.

I think there were 7 bodies found in Cuxton whilst building the railway bridge over the Medway a few years back said to be saxon
