Bronze age traces found in forest
Archaeologists have found what they believe is evidence of Bronze Age farming in the Forest of Dean (Gloucestershire, England). They have identified a series of earthworks which could be the result of ploughing techniques used by farmers up to 4,000 years ago.
The banks, in Chestnuts Wood near Cinderford, are similar to other ridges found a mile away at Welshbury Hill Fort in 1995. Experts have called for the finds to be verified by the Royal Commission.
