EYNESBURY residents are being given the chance to see 7,000 years of history which has been buried beneath their feet.
Developments in the area have allowed archaeologists to get their trowels on the village's history and uncover its past.
Cambridgeshire Archaeology and St Neots Town Centre Initiative have arranged a special archaeology exhibition this weekend which will include some of the finds.
The display will be at Eynesbury Methodist Church Hall on Saturday (April 10) and will cover the arrival of the first settlers to the area in the Stone Age right through almost 7,000 years until the modern day.

Stephen Macaulay, senior project manager of Oxford Archaeology East, said: "Eynesbury has seen a number of big archaeological digs over the past few years and this is your chance to find out what they actually found. So next time you shop at Tesco, you will know what used to lie under your feet. I think it might surprise you!"
INFORMATION: The free exhibition has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and will be open from 10am until 4pm. The exhibition material will then go on display in the St Neots Museum from April 14 until May 15 (Tuesday to Saturday 11am-4pm). To find out more, visit http://thehumanjourney.net/oaeast
