Demolished cottages and Roman pottery found
From:Loughborough Echo  Writer:  Date:2014-08-19
AN archaeological dig in Anstey has revealed new clues about the village’s past.
 
Test pits dug around Anstey revealed the foundations of demolished cottages from two different periods, animal bones, and Roman pottery.

The items spanned two thousand years of the village’s history, the majority from the 11th or 12th century onwards.
 
Some test pits also contained fragments of flint from early tool making.
 
The dig was part of the Charnwood Roots project, which is exploring how people lived, worked and enjoyed the Charnwood area across the centuries.
 
Project manager Dr Julie Attard said 116 volunteers took part over the two days.
 
“We’ll be back in Anstey next month with our findings,” she said.
 
Test-pits were dug across the village, mainly in back gardens but also in some public spaces such as the Memorial Sports ground and by the Pack Horse Bridge.
