Archaeology Open Day at A14 Excavations


A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Improvement Scheme – Excavation Open Day (see the poster above)

Saturday 8th December between 10am – 3pm

Mill Common, Huntingdon

Archaeologists are excavating along the route of the Pathfinder Link Road into Huntingdon. This is revealing some Romano-British and Medieval remains including; a possible Roman Road, ditches and pits. Finds so far include; Romano-British, Medieval and Post Medieval pottery, animal bones and evidence for later activity and we are also hoping to find evidence from the Civil War and the Early Medieval period.
Free guided tours of the site will be available every 30 minutes from 10am – 12noon and 1pm until 2.30pm. Visitors should wear stout shoes – boots and warm clothing on site.
Visitors to the site on Mill Common (opposite Huntingdon Bus Station) will be able to see some of the finds so far, meet some of the archaeologists and find out more about the excavations along the A14.
