Originator:Gardner, K. S.
Summary:Excavations by the Lundy Field Society in 1962 (site 5) located a wedge-shaped grave slab covering the grave of a teenage girl which had cut through a 14th century rubbish layer, and was later re-used for the burial of a 45-year old male who had sustained serious leg injuries at death. By the 17th century the burials had been sealed by a further rubbish tip. Further slabs were located and one headstone re-erected.
