|Description ||The first summer of a three-summer dig at Chester Roman Amphitheatre has yielded possible evidence of an Iron Age settlement.|
Pollen samples taken from the bottom, pre-Roman layer at the amphitheatre have included cereal pollen, giving indications of arable farming.
Confirmation of an Iron Age settlement at this location would be an exciting insight into this area usually dominated by Roman and post-Roman archaeology.
More information, with many pictures, webcam, diagrams and photos of the Chester Amphitheatre Project can be viewed on their website.
|This is interesting because not much is known about pre-roman activity around chester. There was no settlement in Chester before the Romans founded the fortress for the conquest of Britian. But there may have been hunting activity around the River.|
