A Field Trip Through Time

Archaeologist at RAF Lakenheath, England, discovered human remains within what used to be large mounds of dirt Nov. 20. Later on during Roman, Ancient British and Saxon times, people were buried around the perimeter of these mounds, which is where these skeletal remains were found. Over the thousands of years the mounds were eroded away or plowed over for agriculture. The above skeletal remains are from a man, the Archaeological Service found an iron knife and a pendent buried with the man. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Perry Aston)
