Lost civilization waterhole. . . .found Dig uncovers Iron Age waterhole
Archaeologists have found what they describe as a remarkable Iron Age waterhole on the site of an extension to York University.

The waterhole complete with a preserved wickerwork lining was revealed during excavations in Heslington village.

The structure also contains fragments of wood giving clues to the landscape of the time, about 2,500 years ago.

Seems kind of. . . .boring. But it looks to have organics preserved, hence the apparent importance.
