Archaeological dig uncovers Bronze Age relics
Archaeologists have unearthed Bronze Age relics at an excavation near Huntingdon (Cambridgeshire, England). The finds have been discovered by archaeologists from the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council, who are working in conjunction with Clegg's Ltd on behalf of the County Council at Walden House on George Street. The excavations have unearthed archaeology which spans an enormous period of time, from the Bronze Age to the 19th century, but the bulk of the remains are from the 12th to 14th centuries. Archaeologists found many large pits that may have been dug to extract sand and gravel, as well as a large oven and evidence of small scale metal working.
