Chance to view ancient henge site
THE public have the chance to view a 5,000-year-old henge site today (Saturday) after more discoveries were made during a summer dig.
Almost 100 members of the Norton Community Archaeology Group have spent July and August at the site in Stapleton’s Field, Norton, and are now inviting people to a 2pm viewing.
The voluntary group, led by excavation director and archeologist Keith Fitzpatrick-Matthews, found a 50m diameter monument, which is believed to be the earliest settlement in the area.
The volunteers have also uncovered a Roman enclosure, which appears to be a Roman industrial site for iron production.
Chris Hobbs, chairman of the Norton Community Archaeology Group, said: “It’s an exceptionally rare ‘time capsule’ of settlement from 5000 years ago revealing over 2000 finds so far.”
