Anglo-Saxon settlement discovered in the Cotswolds

Steve Sheldon, of Cotswold Archaeology, has called the recent discovery of an Anglo-Saxon timber hall in Cheltenham, England "one of the best finds of his career." The settlement is believed to date between the 6th and 8th centuries.

In addition to the 11m by 6m hall, archaeologists found two skeletons and pottery. The discovery helps prove that Anglo-Saxon influence reached into the Cotswold region.
