Bypass construction in the Four Crosses area in Wales has turned up remains from the Roman, Bronze and Iron Age eras.

CPAT’s autumn newsletter revealed that archaeologists had uncovered possible Mesolithic activity, Neolithic and Bronze Age burial monuments, Iron Age burials and metalworking, Roman metalworking and farming activity, early medieval burials as well as the better-known monuments such as Offa’s Dyke.

It added: “Amongst earliest sites is a ring-ditch with a central grave pit representing an early prehistoric burial mound.”

It said up to a dozen or so similar Neolithic and Bronze Age burial mounds were now known in the area of Four Crosses.
