In November 2017 FRAG made another step forward by affiliating to Jigsaw, a network of archaeology groups active across Cambridgeshire.
Jigsaw started as a 5 year Heritage Lottery Funded project in 2011 by Oxford Archaeology East and Cambridgeshire County Council to assist local history and archaeological societies. The member organisations co-operate regarding historical research, excavation, artefact identification, recording, and much more. We can share information about upcoming events – and the affiliation provides access to more specialist equipment such as a resistivity meter.
FRAG (the Fane Road Archaeology Group) was established just 3 years ago following a community excavation of a Roman villa between Itter Crescent and Fane Road in Peterborough. It’s a small group but it has established a regular programme of talks, workshops, visits and site work.
The group is very open to members who want to help shape its future direction. A number of key post holders will be stepping down in April. Any members who have views about the development of the group’s activities or who would be interested to help as committee members are encouraged to contact chairman, Ian Lockwood Hall using the firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
