An Iron Age Farm in St. Neots

By 02/11/2022November 28th, 2022News

We’ve made the news with our discovery of an Iron Age Farm on a large-scale excavation ahead of the Monksfield development in Cambridgeshire.

So far we’ve found evidence of occupation of the site spanning 700 years, from around 200 BC to at least the sixth century. Although the excavation is just passing the midway point, we can clearly make out the development of the site over time, with evidence of Iron Age roundhouses superseded by land management by successive generations who improved drainage and managed livestock, adding buildings, enclosures and trackways.

If you’d like to know more about the site, tune in to Radio Cambridgeshire at 8.15 tomorrow morning to hear a live interview with Mark Hinman!

“We have many simple cooking pots, quern stones for grinding flour, and the butchered bones of animals from many a long-forgotten meal.” – Mark Hinman
