EEN GRAFVELD UIT DE VROEGE MIDDELEEUWEN BIJ LELLENS (GR.)
A cemetery, probably dating from the 7th-9th century AD, was discovered near the village of Lellens. Although the site had been thoroughly levelled a long time ago, the remains of at least five individuals were found, the cremated remains of four and one skeleton. The skeleton was that of an adult man, aged 34-42 years. Two of the cremations could be analysed and turned out to be of an adult, aged 34-47 years, and a child, aged 3-6 years. The skeleton was accompanied by a knife, a buckle and a clasp(?). Since no settlement traces are known in the vicinity, it seems that the cemetary was associated with one of the two nearby terp mounds, Lellens or another to the south-west of it.
