Power work in Yorkshire Dales turns up Iron Age site

Engineers burying power lines in the Yorkshire Dales (England) have unearthed a piece of ancient history which has baffled experts. Along-buried strip of ash and burnt material was discovered in Kingsdale, near Ingleton, by an archaeologist working for United Utilities and Electricity North West. Arthur Batty, from Ingleborough Archaeology Group, said: "We have had the feature carbon-dated and it is Iron Age, about 300 BCE. Previous finds in Kingsdale have given us evidence of human activity from 6,700 BCE up to the present day, but we have very little from this particular Iron Age era."
