“We have got a really extensive area of maybe half a kilometre where we have had buildings right along the road running to the salmon viewing centre.

Mr Bowles said the artefacts found on the site would now be taken away and examined more closely.

    What a exciting discovery. Should be a interesting story to follow, especially to see the Carbon dating results.
