Archaeologists unearth Iron Age settlement during dig in Somerset
The remains of a prehistoric Iron Age settlement have been discovered at a site in Somerset. Archaeologists found remnants of a farm and surrounding fields with evidence of human occupation, believed to date from around 1000 BCE to 400 CE, at Cambria Farm in Taunton (England). The finds take in a period between the late Bronze Age period and Roman times, and a full sweep of the site has been carried out with metal detectors ahead of construction work beginning next year.
