Talk: Tuesday 4 April 2017, 7.30 pm at the Tony Cooper Suite, Cottenham Village College.
The Twenty Pence Project by John Stanford
Doors open 7.15 pm; meeting begins 7.30 pm
FEAG has been working for over 6 years at the Twenty Pence Project site near the scheduled site of Bullocks Haste just outside Cottenham. Based on our fieldwork and analysis by specialists, the site seems to have been a modest, small-scale agricultural site based on arable farming and animal husbandry. There is little evidence for structures, trade or industrial activities, though it is possible that local pottery production occurred not far away. The site was probably in use throughout the Roman period.
In this talk, John Stanford will present an overview of TPP activities and developments in the last 12 months and invite reflections on what the project might mean to archaeological understanding of the fen edge, its impact on FEAG and on individuals involved.
Note: The Tony Cooper Suite is in the sixth form block behind the main school.
