The History & Archaeology of Peterborough Cathedral Square

1 June 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Peterborough Market Square in 1864 - LouiseRayner

Remember the many months of disruption to central Peterborough when the Cathedral Square fountains were installed.

The improvement project by Peterborough City Council initiated in 2008 involved the re-laying of much of the street and pavement surfaces as well as the demolition of the unsightly 1960s “Norwich Union building” which had been home to the post office. This work provided a unique opportunity for archaeologists to observe what lies beneath the modern surfaces. An initial evaluation was undertaken in late 2008 followed by excavation and observation through to August 2010.

The archaeology project was undertaken by Northampton Archaeology (now MOLA) and helped flesh out our understanding of 900 years of Peterborough history.

Speaker: Stephen Morris, MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology)
