EADT Suffolk - - UPFRONT -

A rare Ne­olithic wooden trackway, dat­ing from 2,300BC has been un­cov­ered at an ar­chae­o­log­i­cal dig near Wood­bridge. The dig was com­mis­sioned by Scot­tishPower Re­new­ables as part of a project to in­stall un­der­ground cables for the East Anglia ONE off­shore wind­farm. More than 50 sites along the 37km route have been ex­plored. Ar­chae­ol­o­gists un­earthed the 30 me­tre wooden trackway and plat­form, along with other items in­clud­ing the skull of an Auroch, an ex­tinct species of wild cat­tle, which has been car­bon dated to around 4,300 BC.
