Discovered Roman settlement will not stop modern cemetery plans

The recent discovery of a Roman settlement near Lincoln, England, will not hold up plans for the creation of a modern cemetery. Archaeologists believe that the settlement dates from between the 2nd and 4th centuries.

While pottery, animal bones and evidence of farming have been found at the site, Lincoln City Council's archaeologist Dr Mick Jones does not believe it's sufficient to warrant a more thorough investigation. "What we have found is not of sufficient importance to stop the development going ahead," he said.
