Remains of Jane Austen’s home unearthed

The remains of Jane Austen’s Steventon home, where she wrote drafts of Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice, have been unearthed in Hampshire, UK.

Debbie Charlton, of archaeologists Archaeo Briton, who led the dig, said: “Our main focus for the project is putting together the puzzle of what Jane’s first home was like.”

Although the original shape of the building was recorded on a local map in the early 1800s, it was not to scale and the few drawings made by different artists appear contradictory.
