The Jigsaw Cambridgeshire Training Dig at Covington took place from 4 – 18 July 2015, and was a training exercise for volunteers across the county to learn excavation and recording techniques.
There were three main phases of earlier occupation of the field: the 11th – mid/late 13th century when three north to south aligned boundary ditches were in use across the site; the mid 15th – 16th century when ditches/pits to the south-east and north-west of the site were in use, as well as a pond close to the manor site. The final phase of use was the 20th century animal disease burning pit in the south-western part of the site and the demolition of post-medieval buildings marked on the 1764 and 1851 maps.
Two Level 3 workshop training sessions were run during the excavation, as part of the 2015 Jigsaw Training Programme, there were Medieval pottery making and building a Roman-style pottery kiln.
