Bronze Age burial site unearthed in central Oxford

Archaeologists in central Oxford, England have unearthed what could be a prehistoric Bronze Age burial site.

The experts discovered traces of three large “ring ditches”, which could have been Bronze Age burial sites.

A Mola spokesman said: “Ring ditches are, as the name suggests, circular ditches, which are often the remains of ploughed-out barrows, that may be associated with burials of high-status individuals in the later Neolithic or Bronze Age, about 4,000 years ago.”
