Stone Age “high street” found in Hampshire

Archaeologists examining a Stone Age settlement under the Solent, a straight between the English coast and the Isle of Wight, have found evidence of an 8,000-year-old “high street”.

“One area they were doing boat building, nearby they were on riverbanks and sand bars collecting reeds or doing a bit of fishing or elsewhere they would be hunting game,” said director Garry Momber.

“Effectively you have all these activities happening which have strong parallels with the modern high street, but they’ve all just been a bit consolidated.”
