Remains of barrow found under Norwich city centre

Excavations in Ber Street have unearthed the traces of a Bronze Age barrow, including pieces of burial urn. The barrow is thought to be the first found in the centre of the city.

A team of four archaeologists has been working at the site for two weeks but, because of the discovery, has been given an extra week to continue searching and recording.

The barrow would have been within sight of the confluence of the Rivers Tas and Yare - an area which includes the Arminghall henge.
