Dig starts for Channel island's secrets
An archaeological dig has begun on Herm - the smallest of the Channel Islands that is open to the public - which could uncover secrets dating back 5,000 years. A team from the University of Durham is on the island on a two-year project excavating Neolithic sites. The archaeological team has already found some pottery and flint pieces in a rocky area behind Shell Beach café. Professor Chris Scarre, who is leading the dig, said that despite natural erosion, the land had been relatively well-preserved.
