Moles on Historic Dig

Daily Mirror 23/4/2012

Helpful moles beneath a Roman fort have been digging up ancient treasures.

Volunteers sifted through molehills to find a piece of rare samian tableware, bits of serving bowls and pots and a jet black bead from a necklace.

Whitley Castle, near Hadrian's Wall is a protected monument and digging is banned.

Landowner Elaine Edgar said: 'The moles are able to do what humans are forbidden by law to do'.

Elaine who has a £49,200 grant to promote he fort, aims to display the finds.
