Kent Iron Age dig forges ahead

Archaeologists believe they have found an Iron Age weapons factory which could be one of the oldest examples of its kind in Kent.

A dig near Tunbridge Wells has uncovered the remains of a furnace that would have been working almost two and a half thousand years ago.

Volunteers are being sought to carry on exploring the site.

We speak to: Eric Hall, site director; Ian Beavis from Tunbridge Wells museum; Nigel Stapple from the Southborough and High Brooms Amateur Archaeological Society and volunteer Patricia Bamblett
