Bronze Age ditch found in Wiltshire
Archaeologists have unearthed a Bronze Age ditch during major road improvement works in Wiltshire (England). Archaeologist Neil Holbrook said the 3,000-year-old ditch dating back to the Bronze Age has been recorded.
The works are being carried out on the A419 by the Highways Agency to create a flyover designed to cut congestion. Roy Canham, an archaeologist for Wiltshire County Council said: "We can now prove that the route of the current A419 has been important for the last 2000 years."
