The Return of the Saxons
GamArch is pleased to invite you to share in a celebration of the earlier Saxon Communities of Gamlingay from around 1300 years ago – to be marked by the re-interment of the skeletal remains of some of those found in the excavation in Station Road in 1997.
The evening will begin in the Kier Suite of the Eco Hub and after brief presentations process to Millbridge Meadows for the re-interment.
Date: Thursday July 4th 2019
Time: 6.00 pm – 7.00pm
We are a group of amateurs with a strong interest in Gamlingay’s history and particularly archaeology. We do, however, have members from other local villages and our interests will extend there.
Contact and other information about us and what we do can be found on our Membership page.
For latest news about our group, local archaeology and related events please check out the News page of our website.
As you can see from our logo above we are affiliated to JIGSAW CAMBRIDGESHIRE who assist local history and archaeological societies in historical research, excavation, artefact identification, recording, and much more. They provide training, equipment and professional advice and are willing to come out on site with us.
In 2014 we became members of the Cambridge Antiquarian Society founded in 1840 and now the repository of over 170 years of the local history and archaeology of Cambridgeshire. They are currently digitising their records and are a valuable resource. See Gamlingay Neolithic Site under Articles of Interest above to see a report of the Society’s proceedings in 1911.
