Archaeologists work closely with large infrastructure projects long before construction starts, to make sure the evidence of the past is properly recorded. 

National Highways understands the importance of local heritage and preserving heritage assets. As part of the archaeological works around the proposed National Highways A428 Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet Improvements, we developed several ways for people to explore and stay up to date with the latest discoveries.

From interactive maps that take you around a plan of one of our digs, to a podcast talking directly to the experts, you can get closer than ever before to Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire’s archaeology!
