Early Medieval Finds in Cambridgeshire

Monday, November 28th, 2011

I recently just discovered the Portable Antiquities Scheme website. This allows me to download KML files for all finds for an era in a county. For example, the map below shows all the Early Medieval finds in Cambridgeshire and how they relate to my own parish (Somersham).

You will need to zoom in. Given the size of Somersham in Domesday, I find the paucity of finds quite surprising!
