Iron Age cremated bodies found in England

The remains of two cremated bodies which date back 2,000 years have been found in Cawston, England.

The bodies were not intact as they were laying in sand which does not preserve bone well, but project officer for Cotswold Archaeology, Vasileios Tsamis, said it was by far the most important discovery made by his team.

“It’s definitely the most significant thing we’ve found so far. It’s a really interesting find and points to the possibility of a farming community,” Mr Tsamis told The Observer.
