Cambridge Archaeology Field Group - Monthly Talk
'Snailwell: A Late Iron Age Elite Burial from Southern England' by Jody Joy (Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology)
Wednesday 5th June 2019 at 7:30pm
McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, Downing site, Cambridge - Parking is available on site from Tennis Court Road.
In 1952 a well-furnished cremation burial was discovered by accident during the construction of a new housing estate at Snailwell, Cambridgeshire. Some objects from the grave are well known, such as the beautiful spiral bracelet with its fearsome animal-headed terminals. But others which tell us a lot about the grave occupant, like the belt buckle thought from a Roman military belt, are not. In this presentation, Jody Joy will discuss his recent work re-examining these artefacts, telling the story of this fascinating burial.
All welcome (CAFG invite contributions of £1 from non-members)
