Digs of­fer amaz­ing in­sight into past

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your View -


work of peo­ple like the now famed Time Team never ceases to amaze.

While it has long been known that the Ro­mans were quite ac­tive in and around Peter­bor­ough, ev­ery new ex­ca­va­tion throws up some­thing un­ex­pected and ex­cit­ing.

This time, the work at St Kyneb­urgha’s Church of­fers a fas­ci­nat­ing glimpse of life 1,000 years ago.

Thanks to the en­thu­si­asm of the team around what they do, what at first glance ap­pears noth­ing more than a bit of rub­ble is trans­formed into a plush Ro­man villa with just a lit­tle imag­i­na­tion.

A greater un­der­stand­ing of our past can only add to the ap­peal of the area in which we all live.
