Local archaeology[edit]

The deserted medieval village (DMV) of Laysingthorpe (or Laisintorp), was probably located in or near Scremby.[5]

Between 2017 and 2019, archaeological excavations near Scremby revealed a 5th-6th century AD high status Anglo-Saxon cemetery, with a range of grave goods that included jewellery, combs, shields and other weapons, in total 49 graves containing the remains of men and women were recovered. The site was initially discovered by a local detectorist; subsequent excavations were carried out by Dr Hugh Willmott from the University of Sheffield Archaeology Department, together with members of the Royal Air Force, and regional and international volunteers.
