Prehistoric archaeological project in Dorset gets lottery grant
An archaeological scheme to investigate an area of Blandford in Dorset (England) where ancient settlements have been found has been given £23,100 of lottery cash.
In 2008 a dig was carried out on the site earmarked for the new Milldown Primary School in the town. It found evidence that the site was lived on between the end of the Stone Age and beginning of the Bronze Age, between 5,000 and 4,000 years ago. During the excavation a large number of flint tools and indications of pits and ditches were discovered. The money will pay for further research into signs of settlements in the area.
