Bronze Age transportation route found in London

An archaeological survey performed prior to Crossrail construction in London has turned up evidence of a Bronze Age transportation route.

As excavation works for the Plumstead tunnel portal got under way our archaeologists uncovered several wooden stakes and at least two that appear to have cut marks from a metal axe.

“Although we haven’t identified an actual trackway yet, the timbers are similar to those used to make the trackways and certainly show that people were in the area exploiting the woodland.”
