The archaeological excavation at Northstowe Phase 2 will be open to the public between 10am and 4pm on Saturday 8th July 2017. Work is currently progressing on a large Iron Age and Roman settlement extending over at least 20 hectares (50 acres).  The site is located at a crossroads and there are remains of buildings, ditches, rubbish pits and many other features and artefacts from all periods of the site’s history.


There will be an opportunity to view on-going excavation work on part of the site, a display of finds and information about both the process of the work and the archaeological findings. Access Cambridge Archaeology (ACA) will also be on site offering hands on learning for any younger visitors and there will also be a chance to sign up to take part in an archaeological dig in Longstanton.



Access to the archaeology site is via the gate to the former Oakington Barracks on Rampton Road, Longstanton, CB24 3EN. Parking is available on site. There is level access suitable for wheelchair users and those of more limited mobility.
