Newnham Fellow Dr Sam Lucy (NC 1991) was interviewed by ITV Anglia and Look East about a new exhibition of seventh century artefacts found in Trumpington in 2012. The face of a young Anglo-Saxon woman who was buried there has been reconstructed and will feature in a new exhibition.
The image and artefacts from the mysterious woman’s burial – discovered in 2012 by the Cambridge Archaeological Unit at Trumpington Meadows on Cambridge’s southern limits – including her famous cross, will be unveiled in a major new exhibition at Cambridge’s Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (MAA). ‘Beneath Our Feet: Archaeology of the Cambridge Region’ will run from 21st June to 14th April 2024. Sam, a specialist in Anglo-Saxon burial, published the excavations at Trumpington in 2012. Find out more about the story here.
