Medieval road found under Lincoln

Six feet below street level in the center of Lincoln, England lies a medieval road, complete with wheel ruts, and bounded by a large building, such as a warehouse. Now archaeologists are faced with the task of discovering all they can about the site in six weeks before construction begins on a new store.

The road, which is believed to date to the 14th century, would have been "quite hemmed in by buildings on either side," said Chris Clay, director of Allen Archaeology, based in Branston. "You can imagine houses and shops all along the front of the High Street in the medieval period."
