Yorkshire Dales National Park reveals Anglo Saxon building The ruins of what is thought to be an Anglo Saxon building have been revealed by amateur archaeologists in part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The stone building, near Selside, North Yorkshire, was uncovered by members of the Ingleborough Archaeology Group. Samples of charcoal found in the soil floor were carbon dated. That revealed they date from between 660 and 780 AD. Robert White, from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, said the building was an "exciting" discovery. "The National Park has a wealth of archaeological sites, but very few have been excavated and even fewer since scientific dating techniques became widely available," he said. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-york-north-yorkshire-16013307
