Alison Dickens from the Cambridge Archaeological Unit
gave a talk to a packed hall about the excavations carried
out on the Trumpington Meadows site before the start of
the work on the housing development and the subsequent
research into the evidence found on the site. Alison
focused on the bed burial and the gold and garnet
brooch, with analogies from the handful of other bed
burials and crosses that have been found in England

Alison showed us around the excavation in
May 2011
and gave a previous talk to us in
April 2013.
