The Fen Edge Archaeology Group (FEAG) will be conducting its fourth season of fieldwork at the Twenty Pence site just outside Cottenham, with permission and generous support from the owners of the land.

The Twenty Pence site is located near a Scheduled Ancient Monument where upstanding Roman earthworks are visible abutting the route of the Car Dyke. FEAG's previous fieldwork revealed a large number of ditches and some other enigmatic features on which they hope to shed more light this season. They have recovered a large quantity of pottery, animal bone, burnt clay and a variety of small finds as well as organic remains through flotation.

As part of the CBA Festival of Archaeology, FEAG are organising visits to the site on Saturday, 12th July at 11:00 and 14:30.

More information on the project is available here:

FEAG are taking visitors to the site using a minibus from Cottenham, so numbers will be limited. If you would like to attend please email, with your name, preferred time and telephone number. FEAG will be in contact to let you know the joining instructions nearer the time.
