In 2008, something extraordinary was excavated here: the remains of an amber necklace from the early Bronze Age. It's unusual enough to find one bead, let alone the 80 found here, and they're more associated with places like Wessex and Orkney. But its design was unusual, more like the jet necklaces found in the north of England. So it's a rather special thing. The webpage has links to many more photos.
