Soon after the Norman invasion of England, William the Conqueror ordered the construction of a castle in the old Roman fort at Lincoln, England, casuing the destruction of over 100 Saxon homes. Now archaeologists have found their remains.
"The Saxons would not have been able to do anything about this. The Norman Conquest remodelled Anglo Saxon England, said Cecily Spall, from Field Archaeology Specialists.
Work on the castle grounds has uncovered the remnants of the original Saxon houses including a fireplace, pottery and the marks of structural timbers.
