Bones that are be­lieved to have formed part of a 12th cen­tury grave­yard were dis­cov­ered in a back gar­den in Thorpe Park Road, Peter­bor­ough last Septem­ber.

Coins, pot­tery, cut­lery and cloth­ing dat­ing back to pre16th cen­tury Peter­bor­ough was un­earthed be­neath Cathe­dral Square last July as a dig was held be­fore the re­gen­er­a­tion works be­gan.

A Time Team ex­ca­va­tion of the 213-year-old Ro­man Cross Pris­oner of War camp last July found pot­tery, but­tons, glass, domi­noes and items carved by pris­on­ers.

Flag Fen, north of the River Nene, is the city’s most fa­mous ar­chae­o­log­i­cal site, pre­serv­ing Bronze Age tim­ber walk­ways built by Celts 3, 00 years ago.
