Hutton Pulitzer Reports:  1,500-Year-Old Settlement Reveals Ancient Jewelry #HuttonPulitzer #JovanHuttonPulitzer

Archaeologists from Oxford Archaeology working at Cherry Hinton in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England, have uncovered a wealth of Roman and Anglo-Saxon finds, as well as shed light on the origins of Cherry Hinton itself.

The archaeological team, working on behalf of CgMs and Weston Homes, spent several months on the site next to Cambridge Airport, excavating and recording the archaeology in advance of redevelopment.

“The excavations show that there has been a residential settlement on this site dating back to the Roman era. The Anglo-Saxon artifacts are of strong historical importance, so we are taking all measures to ensure that they are being carefully preserved and recorded,” said Bob Weston, Chairman of Weston Homes.

Providing a fascinating insight into the lifestyle and clothing of the ancient Anglo-Saxon era, the findings include precious jewelry such as fine brooches, multi-colored glass and amber beads, rings and hairpins dating back to the 6th century CE, as well as remnants of an original village-style settlement.
