ARCHAEOLOGISTS and a story teller will be welcoming people to Stonea Camp hill fort, near Wimblington to help bring the story of past to life.

The site, which is scheduled as being of national importance, was the scene of much activity in the Iron Age and Roman periods. The tour was originally scheduled for the spring but cancelled due to poor weather. It has been rearranged for today (Wednesday) at 7pm from the site entrance past Stitches Farm, signposted from the B1093 to Manea. The guide is Stephen Macaulay from Oxford Archaeology (East).

Cambs County Council archaeologist Quinton Carroll, said: “Stonea Camp witnessed some of the earliest struggles in the name of national identity that we know about, and its story is one of the most important, and tragic, in Cambridgeshire. We are delighted to have a professional story teller, Paul Jackson to help bring this tale to life.”
