Saxon Burial Treasure

These are part of a collection of Saxon grave goods found in a village near Evesham, dating from between the 6th and 7th centuries. The site they were found at is peculiar in that nothing else has been found there since, it is exposed and not near any large or particularly wealthy Saxon settlement - it calls you to wonder why the couple died and were buried there, were they just travelling through or did this place have a significance that we don't know of?
