You can read about Saffron Walden Museum’s Heritage Lottery Funded ‘Dig on the Common’ on the Uttlesford District Council website here and follow their progress during the five-day dig on their blog here.
The trenches are under the direction of Access Cambridge Archaeology as part of Cambridge Community Heritage and involves sixth-form students from Saffron Walden County High School and Newport Free Grammar School.
Visitors are welcome to visit the dig on the common during excavation hours (9:30am-3:30pm) from Monday 22nd to Friday 26th July. There will be a daily update on site at 3:30pm.
Saffron Walden Museum is also open from 10am to 5pm on weekdays during the summer and boasts a wide-ranging collection from local archaeology to costumes and textiles to local history to animals and plants.
