Welcome to Peterborough Archaeology

Peterborough Archaeology is where you’ll find out about everything archaeological in the area.

FRAG (Fane Road Archaeology Group) invites you to help explore a Roman villa site in central Peterborough.

We also want to help you discover more about the people who have lived in and around Peterborough over thousands of years.

You’ll be surprised by the wealth of archaeology in the region – and  there are regular new insights provided by high profile surveys and excavations.

We provide a schedule of upcoming talks and activities organised both by FRAG and by other local groups. Click on a specific event to find out more details.

We’ll help you get hands on with the past!
