Story teller will bring past to life

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & World Update -

AR­CHAE­OL­O­GISTS and a story teller are to wel­come peo­ple to an his­toric site near Peter­bor­ough to help bring time past back to life.

The event will take place at Stonea Camp hill fort, near Wim­bling­ton, which is recog­nised as a place of na­tional im­por­tance hav­ing been the scene of a lot of ac­tiv­ity in the Iron Age and Ro­man pe­ri­ods.

Now vis­i­tors can see and hear for them­selves for free the story of the site at a spe­cial event, in­clud­ing a walk and sto­ry­telling, at the hill fort on May 9.

The fort formed part of the fron­tier of the Iceni tribe, who twice rose in re­volt against the Ro­man in­vaders, the sec­ond time un­der the lead­er­ship of their queen, Boudicca.

The walk will start at 7pm from the site en­trance past Stitches Farm, sign­posted from the B1093 to Manea. Par­tic­i­pants will be guided round the site by David Craw­ford-white from Ox­ford Ar­chae­ol­ogy fol­lowed by the story of Stonea by fire­light. Please dress suit­ably.
