Bridgewater Times: Fish traps, dating from the 10th century C.E., have been discovered in England's Bridgwater Bay. Bridgwater Bay in Somerset County, England, has long been a center for fishing in the country. Now, it seems, the Saxons were well acquainted with the Bay and set their own fish traps there, as discovered recently by archaeologists who found traps dating to the 10th century. Many of the traps are from wood not native to England. English Heritage will foot the bill for radiocarbon and tree-ring dating to more about the Saxon traps.
