Prehistoric settlement unearthed in Herefordshire
A previously unknown prehistoric settlement has been unearthed in Herefordshire (England). The area was discovered on the Arrow Valley floodplain below the ancient castle at Staunton-on-Arrow and dates back more than 4,000 years.
As part of the project archaeologists teamed up with farmers and residents in the area to explore the history of the river valley. A Herefordshire Council spokesman said the work involved recording historical sites on farms and how farmers had seen the landscape change. Excavations provided new insights to the prehistoric occupation of the valley, he added.
Keith Ray, Herefordshire Council's County Archaeologist, said: "This project has unearthed some fascinating finds. It's also been a great opportunity to work closely with the community of Arrow Valley."
