Bronze Age burial site unearthed
A Bronze Age burial site has been unearthed by archaeologists working at a quarry in Cambridgeshire.

The find was made at Pode Hole Quarry, in Thorney, near Peterborough, where a child's skeleton has been uncovered.

Teams had already discovered the 3,500-year-old remains of a man at the quarry, in July.

Archaeologist Andy Richmond said the find was significant as it helped to piece together the history of life on the edge of the Fens.
