4,000-year-old road found in city (UK)





A Bronze Age road has been found below Swansea's shifting foreshore.

The short section of track was discovered by a metal detector enthusiast and archaeologists have now dated it to around 4,000 years ago.

Woven from narrow branches of oak and alder the structure was covered in a thin layer of brushwood to provide a level walking-surface.

It was found in March when it was uncovered by storms but has since disappeared back under the marine clay.
