As part of our Heritage Lottery Funded project in 2013, 32 test pits were dug at various locations in the village. To view the reports on the finds, please click on the download links below.  A full report summarising the results has been produced by Cambridge University.

The video below shows Dr Carenza Lewis's address to a crowded Meldreth Village Hall in November 2013, following the conclusion of the project, when she explained the significance of the findings and what they can tell us about the history and development of the village.
