Archaeological dig in grounds of a Cambridgeshire college

Students at a Cambridgeshire (England) college have begun an archaeological dig of their 'artefact-rich' grounds. Previous excavations at Linton Village College have revealed evidence of a Roman settlement and Bronze Age burial remains. Neolithic pits dug 5,000 years ago have also been found there.
     The dig is part of year-long art, archaeology and film-making project funded by a £25,000 lottery grant. "We don't know what they will find, but it is almost certain that they will find something," said archaeologist David Crawford-White, who is working with the students. "It will be tremendously exciting to be the first person to see and touch an object for over 2,000 years." The students are teaming up with a professional film-maker to record their findings.
