Abstract

This paper reports on the fifth year of the University of
Cambridge Higher Education Field Academy (HEFA)
project run by Access Cambridge Archaeology (ACA)
which combines education and university outreach
(particularly within the secondary school sector) with the
archaeological investigation of currently occupied rural
settlements (CORS) by the excavation of 1-metre square
test pits in open spaces within existing rural villages and
hamlets. The programme was directed by Carenza Lewis,
with Catherine Ranson supervising. Paul Blinkhorn
reported on the pottery for all sites except Castleton.
Summaries of the results of the HEFA CORS project in
2005–8 have been published in earlier volumes of MSRG
Annual Report (Lewis 2006, 2007a, 2008), while the
aims and methods have been outlined elsewhere (Lewis
2007b) and can also be viewed on the ACA website
(http://www.arch.cam.ac.uk/aca/). The website also
includes copies of 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 pit excavations have been carried
out by ACA since 2005.
