Hinkley C excavations unearth 3,000 year old settlement
EXCAVATIONS at the Hinkley C site have revealed the remains of a 3,000-year-old Bronze Age settlement.
Archaeologists have also discovered the first Saxon grub hut to be found in Somerset, and a number of Roman features and artefacts, including a grain drier, quern stones, a stone anchor, fishing net weights, jewellery and graves.
The work was funded by EDF Energy as part of its site preparations and carried out by Somerset County Council.
The county’s heritage team is now carrying out an outreach programme across Somerset, giving people the chance to find out more about the history of the site.
