Other scientific tests show the young woman was born near the Alps,
possibly in what is now southern Germany. She moved to Cambridgeshire in
England at about the age of 7. She apparently was suffering a long illness

The woman was of high status. The body was buried on a bed, and a gold and
garnet cross was found with the burial.
