Description:In one of the graves excavated at Bidford on Avon an unusual collection of grave goods was discovered. This has led to the theory that the woman may have been a 'cunning' or 'wise woman'.

What use would the antler cone have?
Did the bronze stud, bone amulet and bronze 'spangle' have any special significance?

Do you think she was a 'wise woman'?
