In what is described as the largest single excavation undertaken in the city, experts have uncovered traces of field systems, enclosures and settlements dating back to the Middle Bronze Age - 1,500 years ago. Finds include pottery and metalwork, among them a bronze spearhead, and a variety of body parts, including human skulls.
