Hampshire dig produces evidence of 12th century settlement

The Reverend James Bruce of St Michael and All Angels in Lyndhurst, England wanted a new driveway for the church, and allowed archaeologists to excavate the mound on which the church stands. Under the church, they discovered nearly 100 bits of medieval pottery.

Frank Green, New Forest National Park Authority archaeologist, said: "While the archaeological evidence from the excavation was relatively small, it is a very significant range of material for Lyndhurst."
