Test Pit Digging



We would like to say thank you to all the people who offered their gardens to have a test pit dug and also to the extended group who offered. This was a series of four years which is now complete and the results and full report will be published in the New Year. The Scheme is run by Access Cambridge Archaeology which is part of Cambridge University using local school children of Years 9 and 10. Over the last four years, 152 students have taken part digging out our village history. From 39 pits, broken pottery from the 1st C (Roman) to 20thC (Lego) have been unearthed.

At the exhibition, I set out the finds and show them below.
