Leper Chapel Archaeological Dig

Last year, on the 20th November, members of the society were lucky enough to be invited to visit an archaeological dig site being run by Oxford Archaeology East. The site was on the ground to the East of the Leper Chapel on Newmarket Road and was a short test site prompted by the expected use of the area for the new cycle route in the future.

Oxford Archaeology have now completed their report into what was found on the site which you can download and read.

You can also see some photos from the dig on their Facebook page

And here are a few photos from the Mill Road History visit.
