'This volume is an important addition to our knowledge of this period in time, and is both an attractive and an informative publication.' – Richard Osgood (2024): Current Archaeology 408

'This volume is an excellent addition to the ever-growing corpus of early Anglo-Saxon cemetery excavation reports. The cemetery at Stanton, Suffolk, provides another example of an early-medieval mortuary landscape focused around a Bronze Age barrow. The report provides a well-organised and presented catalogue and includes specialist analyses of gravegoods, human osteology and isotopic studies, and more. The discussion of the material provides valuable comparisons with other early-medieval contexts from a local to wider range between Suffolk, East Anglia and across early Anglo-Saxon England.' – Brian Costello (2023): Medieval Archaeology vol 67.2
