Staploe Archaeology Group was established in 2019 with the aim of researching the history of the Staploe Hundred and the surrounding area through archaeology and archaeological geophysics.   The catchment area for membership is East Cambridgeshire and to the south of the Ely area. We meet on the second Wednesday of the month (January to November) in Soham and aim to run at least one training session or group activity each month.


Covid-19 April 2021 Update:   STAG meetings to continue to take place on Zoom until further notice.

Following Social Distancing Rules and our own safety guidelines, we joined with Eltisley History Society, to enjoy 8 days of fine April weather for an excavation with a public viewing afternoon on Glebe Land at St Pandionia's Church, Eltisley.  A further 2 days of excavation are planned for early May.
