Experts explore site for historic artefacts
ARCHAEOLOGISTS are searching a controversial site for historic artefacts before diggers get to work developing the land into a housing estate.

The project started in September and archaeologists have been busy exploring the history of the 30-acre site in Old Kempshott Lane, Basingstoke.

The eastern boundary of the land runs along the course of the Roman road that used to connect Silchester with Chichester and historians are hopeful of finding treasures from the Iron Age and the Romano-British period.

Ya know. . .this is what I love about the Internet: A piece from a publication known as "This Is Basingstoke".
