Jigsaw has set up two new Archaeology Action Groups, which have had their first few meetings:

North Cambridge Archaeology Group

Did you know that Kings Hedges has its very own Roman villa, and that Carlton Way follows the course of a Roman road? Or that a Bronze Age hoard was found in Chesterton? Jigsaw is setting up a new Archaeology Action Group in Arbury, Kings Hedges and Chesterton. We held a launch event on 31st January, and hope to conduct geophysical surveys of the area and excavation activities such as testpitting.

The next meeting is on Wednesday 5th March 2014, 8-9.30pm in the Small Hall at Arbury Community Centre, Campkin Road. We will be looking at maps and plotting archaeological discoveries. All welcome! For more information, contact Jemima.

East Cambs Archaeology Group

Our next meeting is Saturday 22nd March from 10.30am - 12.30am at Ely Museum. We will be working through an archaeological timeline and looking at what archaeological research has been conducted locally. In the future we hope to visit the Archeology and Anthropology Museum in Cambridge, and look at local artefacts at Ely Museum. For more information, contact Jo.
