There are many cases of individuals in Anglo Saxon cemeteries exhibiting injuries (some perimortem, some which healed) .
Reynold's "Anglo-Saxon Deviant Burial Customs" details some, as does S C Hawkes' "Weapons and Warfare in Anglo Saxon England".
And then, of course, there's Wisby., where 1800 Gotlanders were killed. The three common graves there have yielded about 1200 individuals, exhibiting injuries ranging from projectile attack to dismemberment. One individual had both legs and one arm severed. 65% of the injuries were on lower limbs. c. 50% had head injuries as well.
