Abstract

In June 1993, Cambridgeshire Archaeology completed an excavation in the village of Tilbrook (Figure 1). A single Hand-excavated trench was opened on the site of the remains of the village cross in an attempt to locate the base and cross. A single hand-excavated trench was opened on the site of a stone stump protruding from the grass verge which was believed to be the remains of the village cross. The purpose of the excavation was to confirm that this was in fact the site of the village cross and to locate any fragmented remains that might be present in the immediate area. A stone pedestal for the cross was found, as well as a 20th century roadside ditch. The cross itself was not found in the area examined.
