Archaeologists have unearthed the tree trunk foundations of a longhouse in Monmouth, Wales.

Monmouth Archaeology, which found the wooden foundations, said they dated to at least the Bronze Age, but could be early Neolithic, about 6,500 years old.

It said the pyramids were built about 4,500 years ago.

Steve Clarke of Monmouth Archaeology, who has 55 years’ experience, claimed nothing like it had been discovered in Britain before and he was checking if something similar had been unearthed on mainland Europe.
