Neolithic quarry found during dig in Wales

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A small quarry used to make stone tools dating back 6,000 years has been unearthed during an archaeological dig.

The Neolithic site was found at St Dyfnog's Well, Denbighshire, which was previously dated to the 6th Century.

Pilgrims have visited the well at Llanrhaeadr for centuries because of its connections to a Welsh saint.

The dig found chert was excavated from limestone by lighting fires to heat the rock before pouring on water to splinter and remove stone.

Archaeologist Ian Brooks said little was known about such sites which made the discovery "nationally important".
