Story teller will bring past to life
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.
