    New Bronze Age Enclosure discovered in Britain?

    See:

    http://www.archaeology.org/news/4811...-seven-sisters

    "SUSSEX, ENGLAND—Culture 24 reports that archaeologists from England’s National Trust will use laser scans, environmental scanning, and analyze microscopic snails that only live in certain habitats to investigate an earthwork at the site of Belle Tout, which is located on the Seven Sisters chalk cliffs. The huge structure, thought to be one of the largest prehistoric enclosures in England, may have been part of an early Bronze Age settlement. “We don’t know for sure how much we’ve lost over the last 6,000 years due to coastal erosion,” said archaeologist Tom Dommett."


    This is how I always picture the "White Cliffs of Dover", although they are located elsewhere.

    I've seen way too many WWII movies. As soon as I hear the phrase, I think of this song:)

    it's a beautiful setting, and the structures the scan show are quite impressive
    IMO there must have been regular cross-channel trafick from the early (Bell Beaker) bronze age on
