Possible Iron Age find in central England
Iron Age remains may have been found in a Harborough field (England) earmarked for possible housing development. Archaeological experts have dug trenches at the site, off Lubenham Hill, to investigate further. Evidence of possible cattle and sheep farming by agricultural workers in the Iron Age is believed to have discovered.
The site is being eyed-up by developers Linden Homes for housing and it commissioned an archaeological report to be carried out as part of its pre-planning application consultation. Archaeological consultant Mike Dawson, from CGMS which is conducting the survey, said it was too early to comment on the significance of the find.
