LIFE AND DEATH IN EARLY MEDIEVAL CAMBRIDGE: THE CROFT GARDENS CEMETERY

1:15pm-2:00pm on Wednesday 6 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

An introduction to the newly discovered early medieval cemetery beside the Barton Road, and to the individuals who lived and died in Cambridge 1,500 years ago.

In autumn 2020 excavations were carried out on behalf of King’s College at Croft Gardens, on the Barton Road in Cambridge, ahead of the construction of new accommodation blocks. Part of a major early medieval cemetery was discovered on the site, dating from the fifth and sixth centuries AD.

This talk presents an introduction to the cemetery and the research currently underway. For three individuals from the cemetery, reconstructed ‘biographies’ will be presented, allowing us to unpick the lives, identities and relationships of the people buried at Croft Gardens.
