The 'Silent Voices and Deserted Homes' project was funded by a Heritage Lottery Fund 'All Our Stories' grant allowing the Cambridge Archaeology Field Group (CAFG) to investigate the archaeology and lost landscapes on the Wimpole Estate. The project also received support from Cambridge Community Heritage at the University of Cambridge and from the National Trust. From January 2013 for over six years CAFG researched and recorded the story of the people on the estate at various historical periods. To document the now completed project the group recently published a 52-page booklet highlighting many aspects of the research [Wimpole: Silent Voices and Deserted Homes (v5 Final)(.pdf document)] and the ten accompanying Display Boards listed below.
The display boards illustrate the following topics:
1: Silent Voices and Deserted Homes
2: The Landscape of Wimpole
3: Evidence from Documents: 1
4: Evidence from Documents: 2
5: Wratworth: a Lost Cambridgeshire Village
6: Evidence from Fieldwalking
7: Evidence from Test Pits
8: Evidence from Excavation
9: People and Places Remembered
10: That Was the Year That Was...
