The hidden treasures of the new link road between Hastings and Bexhill have been laid bare deep in the earth. Archaeologists say some wonderful treasures from many eras are now on display.
Archaeologists from Oxford surveying the site of a controversial road scheme have found flint tools dating back 12,000 years. The scientists have been carrying out excavations along the route of the Bexhill to Hastings link road in Sussex.
Protesters say the road is unnecessary and a blight on the landscape.
But its construction is giving archaeologists a unique opportunity to discover more about the way our ancient ancestors lived. Malcolm Shaw reports.
Archaeologists have discovered an Iron Age settlement during a massive dig now underway at the University of Kent at Canterbury.
The excavation comes ahead of the construction of a new college on the campus. Some of the finds, including pottery and even a gold coin, have already been found to date back to 700 BC. Derek Johnson reports.
