WORCESTERSHIRE, ENGLAND—The remains of an Iron Age settlement were uncovered in England’s West Midlands during a road construction project, according to a BBC News report. Pottery at the site, which was first spotted with aerial photography, has been dated from 300 to 100 B.C. Further investigation revealed a large ditched enclosure that may have been used to protect harvests. “It has given us a vital glimpse into what life would have been like in the Iron Age,” said Worcestershire Archaeology archaeologist Robin Jackson.
