Last week, children from Shepherd’s Spring Pre-School Nursery visited an archaeological dig site.
The site, which is directly behind the nursery, has revealed several Iron Age features, a potential Roman road and an interesting cow burial. The children were guided round by our community & education officer and had the opportunity to speak to field staff whilst viewing the excavation and the finds.

Staff from the nursery were delighted to have the opportunity to experience the archaeological investigations and were nearly as excited as the children!
This visit was organised with the kind permission of Abbey Developments through their consultants CgMs Consulting
