Bronze Age finds
ARCHAEOLOGISTS have found small settlements dating from the late Bronze Age on the Harlow North site where there are plans to build 8000 new homes.

L - P: Archaeology, which works for Ropemaker Properties Ltd, discovered evidence of settlements dating back 3000 years.

The team believes Iron Age folk lived in at least three agricultural settlements. Artefacts found in the evaluation trenches include a bone comb, Roman ironwork, a knife, a brooch, large quantities of pottery and three cremation deposits.
