Highways to the Past


Join us as we take a trip into the past and explore intriguing ancient sites in Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. 2,000 years ago, this area was full of small settlements, intensely farming the landscape. What can we learn about the people who lived here? How did these farms change and develop as the Romans arrive in Britain? In this podcast, you’ll meet some of the people working to answer these questions and join the journey as we gradually reveal the story of this complex region.Excavations are currently being carried out by MOLA, as part of the proposed National Highways A428 Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet improvements.
