Before our new crematorium was built, planning regulations required that an archaeological survey should be undertaken. This survey was conducted by the Cambridge Archaeological Unit and what they found surprised everyone. This site had been used for burials and other rituals since the bronze-age and the artefacts discovered are thought to be of national importance.
Jacqui Hutton was part of the team and last year was kind enough to show members of our society and children from Great Chesterford C of E Primary Academy the work in progress. Now the report on the importance of this site is complete and details the exciting finds uncovered.
On Thursday March 15th at 8:00 pm she will be giving a talk to the Chesterford Local History and Archaeology Society in the Congregational Chapel in Carmel Street, Great Chesterford. Visitors are welcome (£2.00 entrance fee includes refreshments).
