Iron-age dig hitch for planned 1,200 homes in England

The discovery of a possible Iron Age or Roman settlement could scupper plans on land earmarked for a massive housing estate in England. A 13.5-acre section of land owned by Scarborough Council - part of the planned 1,200-home scheme at Middle Deepdale - may cover the remains of an early Iron Age or early-Romano British ladder village. Archaeologists have said that there is a 20 per cent risk that the remains are of such high importance that the area would be unsuitable for development.
