Archaeologists Discover ‘Rare,’ Well-Preserved Bronze Age Wooden Structure

The first sign of the well that the archelogy team uncoveres was a preserved wooden post that had driven vertically into the ground.

The team subsequently uncovered a large structure made of wood, which it determined was a well.

“Despite the extremely challenging conditions, the team were able to expose and fully record the well in the ground,” Boothroyd said in the release.

The specialist soil samples that were collected will also help establish what the surrounding landscape would have been like, and the intensity to which it was settled, when the well was actively being used.”
