Fen Edge Archaeology Group was formed in 2008 and our principal aim is to promote further understanding of the archaeology in the parishes of Willingham, Rampton, Cottenham, Landbeach and Waterbeach in South Cambridgeshire. The group takes its name from its origins in the Fen Edge Community Association.
