Fort dig unearths 'evidence' Cardiff is 6,000 years old


  
The excavation of an Iron Age hillfort in Cardiff has revealed the "most compelling evidence yet" the city dates back 6,000 years, archaeologists said. 

A dig at Caerau Hillfort revealed a Neolithic causeway enclosure and one of the largest collections of pottery from the period ever discovered in Wales.

Animal bones, stone axes, flint tools and a Roman brooch were also found.

Cardiff University archaeologists said the finds "surpassed" expectations.[...] BBC News  /  Link 2
