Abstract

This paper reports on the sixth year of the
University of Cambridge Higher Education Field
Academy (HEFA) project run by Access
Cambridge Archaeology (ACA). As in previous
years, this combines education and university
outreach (particularly within the secondary school
sector) with the archaeological investigation of
currently occupied rural settlements (CORS). The
main method used for this is the excavation of 1-
metre square test pits in open spaces within
existing rural villages and hamlets. Accounts of the
results of the HEFA CORS excavations are
published annually in Medieval Settlement
Research (Lewis 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009),
and can also be viewed on the ACA website
(www.arch.cam.ac.uk/access/) under ‘excavation
reports’. The website also includes the pottery
reports from each site, and distribution maps
showing the distribution of pottery period by period
from the prehistoric to the modern era for every site
where test pits excavations have been carried out
by ACA since 2005.
