Meldreth Test Pit Training Day

Meldreth excav training 1

Meldreth Local History Group attended a training day at the University of Cambridge in advance of their community test pit excavations this summer. The group received a Heritage Lottery Funded grant to explore how the village has developed and evolved and Cambridge Community Heritage are providing advice and support. The training day involved a pottery identification session led by Paul Blinkhorn, post-Roman pottery specialist, and the photographs here show the participants identifying examples of different pottery types. You can read about their preparations on their blog here.
