Prehistoric settlement uncovered in Somerset

An unknown prehistoric settlement has been revealed during archaeological work in East Taunton, Somerset (England). The dig was commissioned by Somerset County Council before construction begins on the Park and Ride scheme for the Cambria Farm site. The remains of a prehistoric farm and surrounding fields reveal human occupation from the late Bronze Age to the Roman period (1000 BCE to 400 CE). Councillor Justin Robinson said: "This is a fascinating piece of Taunton's prehistoric heritage that provides us with a glimpse of everyday life during the Iron Age and helps to fill in the gaps in our knowledge of Somerset's rural past."
