London’s earliest settlers to be uncovered in Britain’s biggest archaeological dig ahead of HS2

Hunter gatherers were living along the flood plains in the early Mesolithic, between 9,000 and 7,000BC.

Now they want to learn more about the lives of people who inhabited Britain at the end of the last ice age, thousands of years before the building of Stonehenge.

…Among the projects, the teams will be investigating Romano-British town in Fleet Marston, Aylesbury,  a medieval manor in Warwickshire, and a 1,000 year old medieval church and burial ground in Buckinghamshire village.

…“From Prehistoric remnants and Roman settlements to deserted medieval villages, Wars of the Roses battlefields and Victorian innovation, HS2’s archaeology programme has it all.”
