From Neolithic to Saxon: Evolution of a North Cambridgeshire Landscape

3 February 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

roman distribution centre - a14

The A14 improvement project triggered one of the most extensive ever archaeological excavations. MOLA Headland Infrastructure employed some 250 archaeologists to dig more than 40 separate excavation areas spanning 350 hectares, uncovering new information about how the landscape was used over 6,000 years, and about the origins of the villages and towns along the route.

Prehistoric henge monuments, barrows and cremation cemeteries. Iron Age farms.  A Roman supply depot and multiple kilns. Saxon settlements including timber buildings. The list of finds is huge. With the investigation phase completed, post excavation analysis is proceeding on multiple fronts. This talk will provide an update on the what this unique project can tell us about the evolution of the north Cambridgeshire landscape from Neolithic to Saxon times.

Speaker: Tony Walsh, Project Manager, Headland Archaeology
