River Archaeology - A Neolithic Discovery

Archaeologist James Balme is well known for his work and discoveries of ancient artefacts left behind in the soils and rivers that surround us by our ancestors here in Britain. James discovered an ancient settlement in a village close to his home almost 12 years ago where he found evidence dating back over 8000 years of human occupation.

Recently James turned his attentions to serarching a river that has run through the settlement for thousands of years and the results of his new investigations are to say the least stunning with a Roman bronze bracelet and flint tools already recovered.
