Prehistoric burial site unearthed in Suffolk





A BRONZE Age burial site has been unearthed by archaeologists excavating the former home of a Suffolk rugby club.

The two fields which served as the home of Sudbury Rugby Club in nearby Great Cornard are the source of great excitement for a team of archaeologists working at the site.

Since moving into the site off The Mead in July teams from Suffolk County Council's Archaeological Service have discovered a haul of artefacts dating back to around 3,000 BC.

The dig has gone ahead as part of a future redevelopment of the site by Persimmon Homes which has paid for the excavation as part of its agreement to build hundreds of new homes in Great Cornard.
