Archeologists examining human remains found by the A453 in Nottinghamshire believe they're from a late Iron age or early Roman settlement.
The bones, which date back around two thousand years, were found in shallow graves during work to turn the road into a dual carriageway.
As well as the human remains, several artefacts were also unearthed including pottery and bits of jewellery.
