Tuesday, April 23, 2013
LEICESTER, ENGLAND—Researchers from the University of Leicester have been excavating a hillfort in the East Midlands for the past four years. They have uncovered a blue glass bead, and iron spearheads, knives, brooches, and a reaping hook. Bronze bucket fittings and trim from a shield have also been unearthed. Bone items include dice and other gaming pieces, and a flute. “All of the artifacts provide a remarkable insight into the lives of people who lived at Burrough Hill during the Iron Age,” said project director John Thomas.
