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 (Trumpington Cross).
Summary to be added.
Alison showed us around the excavation in May 2011 and
gave a previous talk to us in April 2013.
