Northstowe development work finds 'Roman remnants'

Archaeologists have found evidence of a Roman settlement in Cambridgeshire on a site set to become home to 24,000 people.

The site proposed development at Northstowe, north of Cambridge, had Roman pottery dating back to the 2nd and 3rd Centuries, the Cambridge Archaeological Unit (CAU) said.

Alison Dickens, senior manager at the CAU, said: "In the Roman period this land was full of people. History is repeating itself."
