When archaeologists set out to excavate a site, there’s no telling what might turn up. It can be difficult, grueling work that doesn’t always yield the “treasure” they want, but every once in a while, they find something extraordinary.
Some archaeologists were exploring a site in England when they stumbled upon an incredible piece of history. What they uncovered was completely unprecedented.
The most famous relic from England’s ancient history is, undoubtedly, the 5,000-year-old Stonehenge. Still, with more discoveries from the Prehistoric, Roman, and Medieval periods being made each year, there’s always a chance something could come along and dethrone it—such as this shocking find from the 7th century.
