Ancient finds at a British bus station dig
Stone Age pits containing tools and pottery have been uncovered during work on a new bus station in Warwickshire (England). Digs for the bus station in Warwick started in early June and archaeologists said they had been impressed with the finds so far.
Flints and decorated pots dating back about 5,000 years have been found along with the remains of medieval streets. Council leaders said they hoped the finds would eventually go on display at the town's Market Hall Museum. Warwickshire County Council environment spokesman Martin Heatley said some of the finds at the site had been 'fascinating'.
