Archaeologists have uncovered an Iron Age site which is of national and international importance near Pocklington, East Yorkshire. The site thought to be 2,000 years old also revealed the skeletons of two warriors, one who had been ritually speared after death. A practice thought to be connected with realising the inner spirit.
In all, there are around 75 square barrows containing many artifacts from the Arras Culture. People who lived in East Yorkshire during the Middle Iron Age period.
The site, which was discovered by David Wilson Homes, who had commenced work on the Pavilion Square development. Informed the authorities as soon as they realised what they had found, and the excavation will enable the team to study the most significant Iron Age find for 35 years.
