Bronze Age finds at Guernsey airport





With the planned development of Guernsey's runway surveying around the airport uncovered the remains of a bronze age settlement in 2008.

Archaeological excavation began on the site in March 2009 and soon uncovered the remains of what appeared to be a cremation pit.

By March 2010 this picture of a settlement had developed further.

The dig itself was affected by the water table in the area which Phillip explained gets too wet in winter as from November the water rises to less than two feet below the surface which is actually higher than the items being searched for.
