SVCA members helped out at the Cambridge University Independent Learning Archaeology Field School, which was held at Foxearth in Essex this week. Over two days students from Ramsey School in Halstead and Thomas Gainsborough School in Sudbury had the opportunity to investigate test pits in seven locations within the village. On the third day of their course they had the opportunity to visit Cambridge University Archaeology Department.

Jane Crone, SVCA committee member reported. ‘It was great working alongside the students, introducing them to archaeology through fieldwork. Hopefully this event will inspire some of them to join local groups or even consider studying archaeology at university.’
