All welcome
Twenty years ago this year a major archaeological dig took place on the area where the new houses are on Station Road. The finds were very significant: remains of a settlement, and a large Saxon burial site, with evidence of some 118 internments. This Saxon cemetery was an early example of early Christian burials, and a rare example of the changes to the beliefs of people moving from pagan to Christian. This event will include a review of the original findings by Quinton Carroll (Cambridgeshire Historic Environment Team) and an introduction to a major new project led by Dr Sarah Inskip (University of Cambridge). The project is funded by the Wellcome Trust and seeks to examine the health and life of these residents. This is an open meeting for everyone and is planned by GamArch, in partnership with the Gamlingay History Society.
