Bronze and Iron Age remains uncovered in Wales
Bronze and Iron Age remains have been unearthed at the site of a new bypass in Powys (Wales). Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust (CPAT) said a number of interesting finds had been made, but nothing unusual at Four Crosses, near Welshpool. Among the earliest sites found is a ringed ditch representing an early prehistoric burial mound. CPAT said it would analyse the findings.
There were crop marks in the area which denoted burial sites, claimed CPAT. Archaeologists uncovered possible Mesolithic activity, Neolithic and Bronze Age burial monuments, Iron Age burials and metalworking. "Amongst earliest sites is a ring-ditch with a central grave pit representing an early prehistoric burial mound," CPAT said. It said up to a dozen or so similar Neolithic and Bronze Age burial mounds were now known in the area of Four Crosses.
