Discover Cambridge life -1500 years ago

What was life in Cambridge like before the University – or any British University – was founded?

This 15-min documentary about an archaeological excavation in Newnham village explores life in Cambridge after the end of the Roman period. Newnham’s Dr Sam Lucy worked alongside colleagues from King’s College to excavate a large and rich early medieval burial ground on King’s College’s Croft Gardens site on Barton Road.
