"Exciting" Anglo Saxon discovery in Yorkshire Dales National Park

A team of amateur archaeologists from the Ingleborough Archaeology Group has discovered evidence of an Anglo Saxon building in the Yorkshire Dales National Park in northern England. The "exciting" discovery is "the first building in the national park that is firmly dated to the 7th Century and is one of only a handful in the north."

The archaeologists uncovered a stone building near Selside, North Yorkshire, which was dated to the 7th or 8th century CE by samples taken from charcoal found at the site. The building has now been re-covered for conservation purposes.
