Broadway Archaeological Excavation, West End

img_5799Archaeologists from Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service are currently excavating one of the fields along West End, Broadway, at the end of Mill Avenue.

The archaeologists have found evidence of some of Broadway’s earliest known residents: Mesolithic hunter-gathers who lived on the site along Badsey Brook around 10,000 years ago.

The main focus of the dig is a complex Iron Age and Roman settlement with some fantastic Saxon and Roman finds, and an ancient burial site. The dig which is planned to go on until the end of February 2017 and has proved to much more important than expected.

An Open Day for residents was held on Friday 18th November and a further date will be announced soon. For more information about the excavation and recent finds visit: http://www.explorethepast.co.uk/2016/11/open-days-at-broadway-dig.html.
