Serving the communities of Bures St Mary and Bures Hamlet


Community Dig in Bures June 25 - 29th 2012

CONCLUSION of the 5 day Dig

The final report published by the Cambridge

Archaeolical Unit


Undoubtedly two of the most interesting discoveries were:-

Bronze earing
In Trench No 1 beside the road, water was abundant as well as pieces of preserved wood.
Could ththe wood be the remains of a lighter or possibly a footbridge over the stream ?
This side view of the trench, distinctly shows the changing soil structure surrounding the possible stream.
