An author from the University of Cambridge will be holding a talk about her new book at The Fenland Archaeological Society.

Dr Susan Oosthuizen has just published her latest book The Anglo-Saxon Fenland.

The talk will take place on Wednesday April 25 at Mendi’s restaurant in Wisbech starting at 7.30pm and will finish the groups series of winter talks.

The book reveals a ‘traditional landscape managed by relatively prosperous communities who lived in stable societies into which newcomers from north-west Europe were absorbed’.

Susan Oosthuizen directs programmes in the historic environment (landscape and garden history/archaeology) at the Institute of Continuing Education (ICE), and is attached to the University Of Cambridge Department Of Archaeology.
