Stone Age timber structure found in English river

Published on September 28th, 2009 | by Admin


Timber from a huge wooden structure built 8,000 years ago has been found in the Solent River in England.

“Each piece of timber has very clear and distinct cut marks, so we know they have been worked on,” he said.

“It’s an elaborate framework and the timber appears to be linked. It could be a collapsed structure, or perhaps a platform built close to the waterway.”

He added: “This really pushes forward our understanding of the area because it shows they were well established and capable of craftsmanship.”
