'Stones of interest' found on Jersey
Five stones which could date back to the island's Neolithic past were discovered by a team from the Museum of London Archaeological Services investigating fields in St.Clement.
The survey was commissioned in advance of planned construction of 200 affordable homes. A total of 26 test trenches were dug on the approximately 4 hectare site. The stones measure about 60 to 90 centimetres in diameter. Their locations were recorded and the trenches refilled.
A report is expected next month, and will be independently assessed by consultants from Oxford Archaeology before being sent to Jersey Heritage for comment.
Researchers may recommend further investigation.
