Thursday, November 07, 2013
NEWBOROUGH, ENGLAND—Archaeologists have uncovered a small farmstead made up of roundhouses and Roman pottery dating between the first and third centuries A.D. at the site of a solar energy farm in England’s West Midlands. Other artifacts may date to the Saxon era. “We’ve also identified a couple of sites that may be late prehistoric, possibly settlements or funerary sites which we still need to look at,” said archaeologist Richard O’Neill. The site is not far from Flag Fen, where timbers were used to cross waterlogged soil during the Bronze Age.
