Slovak Spectator: Complete Medieval Village Discovered Under Kia Car Site

Workers near Žilina, Slovakia have begun excavating the ruins of a complete 10th-13th century village beneath the site of a proposed Hyundai/Kia car plant.

The village would be the first complete medieval town discovered in Slovak territory. While work will continue on the auto plant, which is some distance from the dig, archaeologists feel that the site will not be compromised.
