Bronze Age roundhouses found in southern England

Two roundhouses dating back 3,000 years have been found at the site of a new housing development in southern England.

Two Bronze Age roundhouses dating back to around 1,000 BC or earlier have been uncovered on farmland adjoining Bulwark Road, along with an Iron Age burial site and ditches, plus a small industrial area.

The discovery at Higher Nansloe Farm has raised questions locally over the future of the project by Coastline Housing to build 75 affordable homes, but the authority indicated this week that there was no change to the plans.

A spokesperson said: “As is usual on sites like this, all of the findings will be fully recorded and certain artefacts will be taken off site for safe keeping before further development work takes place.”
