From obscure objects to high end factory waste, fashionably dressed burials and amulets curated for centuries, small finds can tell big stories about lives in ancient Cambridgeshire. Archaeological excavations along the line of the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Road Improvement Scheme (A14C2H) have provided us with a new transect across the county’s past and have recovered thousands of artefacts. Join Small Finds specialist Owen Humphrey as he presents a series of case studies of some of the most important and evocative Bronze Age, Iron Age and Roman artefacts from the A14 excavations.
