Come and listen to Dr Sam Lucy as she explores what local Cambridge archaeological discoveries can tell us about the lives of those who walked this landscape centuries before us. You may have seen the recreation of the face of the Anglo-Saxon Trumpington Girl published in the press recently. After the talk, you will be able to go and see more of the artefacts from the burial in the Li Ka Shing Gallery in the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, where the exhibition 'Beneath Our Feet: Archaeology of the Cambridge Region' will be taking place.
