The Anglo-Saxon Burial at Coombe [Woodnesborough]*, Kent by Hilda R. Ellis Davidson & Leslie Webster (1967)

*Coombe is a settlement in the English county of Kent. It lies between Ash-next-Sandwich and Woodnesborough. According to Edward Hasted in 1800, it was a hamlet in the western section of the parish of Woodnesborough. The village’s name derives from Ancient Celtic cumbā “valley” which was taken into Old English. The name was recorded as æt cumban in 1005, the first word æt representing ‘at’.
