Cambridgeshire Archaeology will be holding a guided walk along the famous Devils Dyke on Wednesday 8th May at 7pm meeting at the Burwell Road Car Park.

The Devils Dyke is the most prominent ancient monument in Cambridgeshire and the largest Anglo-Saxon defensive dyke in the Great Britain, being even larger than its more famous relative Offa’s Dyke. The tour on Wednesday will look at the wealth of archaeology, history and wildlife on the Dyke and surrounding area that includes a Roman Villa and Anglo-Saxon burial grounds.

Throughout the summer, Cambridgeshire Archaeology run a range guided walks around important archaeological sites in the county.

Stephen Macaulay, Senior Project Manager for Oxford Archaeology East, said: "Devils Ditch is an amazing ancient monument, not only for the Saxon dyke but also all the wealth of nearby archaeology as well. There are the remains of Prehistoric and Roman archaeology as well as the Dyke itself. Come along to the walk and find out for yourself”

If you wish to come to this guided walk please meet David Crawford-White, OA East Outreach Officer at the Burwell Road Car Park, at 7pm on Wednesday 8th May.
