Abstract

This paper reports on the fourth year of the University of
Cambridge Higher Education Field Academy (HEFA)
project which combines education and 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 (mostly private gardens) within
areas currently occupied by settlement. Summaries of the
results of the HEFA CORS project in 2005–7 have been
published in earlier volumes of MSRG Annual Report
(Lewis 2005, 2006, 2007a), while the aims and methods
have been outlined and contextualised elsewhere (Lewis
2007b) and will not be repeated here.
