Preliminary Archaeology Results: Big Dig 2013

As a result of contacts arising from the Archive’s All our Stories Lottery funding, five of the Archive’s editors acted as co-ordinators for Access Cambridge Archaeology (ACA) Higher Education Field Academy (HEFA) to arrange for school students to dig ten, 1 metre by 1 metre, test pits in Daws Heath on 5th and 6th June, as well as enlisting Ages AHA, the local community archaeology group, to dig two more.
