Anything here for the Time Team?

Picture of a digger

It was a tense (though fascinating ) time as the diggers demolished old poly tunnels and a glass house in order to dig test pits for the County Archaeologist.  The aim was to see if any items of historical interest lay beneath the surface.  Mindful of the fact that Roman burial urns had been found nearby and that such a discovery on our site could delay the redevelopment considerably, we were very relieved when the disappointed archaeologist announced that all he had found was mud.
