Teams search for Bredwardine Medieval village

Archaeologists are due to start a three-week dig in Herefordshire in search of a buried Medieval village.

Herefordshire Archaeology, the county's archaeological service, and The University of Manchester, will excavate trenches in The Knapp, in Bredwardine.

Previous digs at the farm have unearthed prehistoric flint tools. The dig lasts from Monday until 17 July.

The team said more evidence of early settlements would widen knowledge about the dispersal of early societies.
