Until now, the earliest known settlements in the city centre are medieval, dating back to the 12th century, less than 1,000 years ago.
A time team from the University of Leicester carried out the dig and found the artefacts preserved in a hollow beneath the ground. Accurate carbon dating has put them at 10,400 years ago – during the Mesolithic or middle stone age.
