     TEST PIT DIGS
 

Following their successful 2015 season, when pottery ranging from the Roman period to modern times was found, Access Cambridge Archaeology's Higher Education Field Academies (HEFA) project are returning to Brundall on Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th May.  They will be carrying out 'mini-digs' in gardens throughout the village.  The digging is done by local young people enrolled on the HEFA course with the aim of introducing them to University life through an archaelogical project.

recorded and retained for analysis.  The pits are dug to one metre deep, ten centimetres at a time.
