Amateur archaeologists uncover evidence of the Romans in part of Wirral

Amateur archeologists have uncovered what's thought to be the first ever evidence that the Romans once made a part of Wirral their home.Residents in Bromborough have been digging test pits in their gardens and have found domestic Roman pottery suggesting possible settlement. They've also dug up some Saxo-Norman artefacts suggesting gold-working in the village, a huge musket ball from the civil war and primitive prehistoric tools.It's all part of the Big Heritage project, an award winning heritage project involving museums, schools and communities.
