Important archaeological find preserved thanks to slow motion tree felling

The modern Forestry Commission have to be commended for their far-thinking approach to land management and the proactive preservation of our heritage.

There are other local instances (which I'll dig out)where the Commission team here in the North have contributed to the the vast cache of archeological gems which have been largely hidden and forgotten since many huge stands of conifers were planted in the 40's and 50's.

Locally (Dorset) I have noticed the FC ring off barrows with marker posts to prevent damage. Also one of the workers found a lost barrow and had it named after him. formicaant Posted by formicaant
