Wallingford has recently benefitted from a period of intense archaeological and documentary research, the outcomes of which include Iain Soden's monograph on St Martin's churchyard. It records the most extensively excavated graveyard in the town, which was centrally located close to the intersection of the two main streets before it was lost to later development. The publication provides an important source for later Anglo-Saxon and medieval burial practises for the region.
