Students from across the region took part in an archaeological study of the south of Long Melford last week, finding Roman and early medieval pottery.

Pupils at Thomas Gainsborough School, Ormiston Sudbury Academy and Hedingham School took part in digs organised by Carenza Lewis and Cambridge University’s higher education field academy.

Long Melford district councillor John Nunn, who helped organise the dig, said the event was a great success and hoped the pupils would be inspired.
