Time Team discovers 3,000 years of history at Cardiff site


Archaeologists from Channel 4 show Time Team have discovered 3,000-year-old homes and artefacts on the site of an Iron Age hillfort in Cardiff.
The show’s experts descended on the ancient site at Caerau Hill, off Church Road in Caerau, to film an episode of the hit series.
The team spent three days working at the site with presenter Tony Robinson saying they had found a “whole spaghetti bolognese” of ditches, circles, roundhouses and enclosures at the site.
He said investigators had found a 3,000-year-old saddlequern tool and pieces of an Iron Age pot which they were able to put back together and almost reconstitute.
