Bronze Age site is found in city

Archaeologists in Cambridge have unearthed the first hard evidence that an area of the city was occupied during the Bronze Age.

The remains were found during a dig at Fitzwilliam College and probably belonged to a 3,500-year-old farmstead.

The remains comprise a series of ditches, in which the team found pieces of antler, flint tools, pottery and animal remains.

Not much else there, but more will undoubtedly be written on it.
